Wow, some fine cars there (understatement)!
For my fellow western PA & east OH'ers: I truly feel like I've been living under a rock - I only recently stumbled upon all this Cars & Coffee activity here in Pittsburgh. I did randomly drive by the black LFA in Shadyside a few months ago - it screamed even at 15 mph and its presence appeared to take up 1 1/2 lanes - it's a large car! I'd be interested to know if anyone else on Prime knew about these. The '92 shown below is currently listed for sale here on Prime and looks to have been treated well.

Looks like a good time. Joined both the open and private FB groups. Will try and make it to the June 16 event, and will bring some folks as well
Nice, thanks for sharing

For any of you unfamiliar with Pittsburgh and looking for reasons to enhance your visit if you come in for this - I'm a pretty big fan of the city and could help suggest ideas for things to see & places to stay, just ask. Also this C&C is held near an IKEA store, for which some people make a special trip if an IKEA isn't near them. The C&C is near some nice backroads - wouldn't be too difficult to jump off the highway at a nearby exit and take some of the country roads towards the WV border instead of taking I-22.
I remain dumbfounded that there are so many nice cars here in PGH that I've never seen. Pittsburgh is more of a blue-collar town with mostly red Corvettes and dime-a-dozen black BMW's on the high end and way too many Pontiac Azteks and Nascar-flavored Chevy Monte Carlos for the DD's. I'll see the occasional Exige or Elise (there's a Lotus, Porsche, and Audi dealer in Sewickley, PA, a cool little town about 15 minutes from the C&C) and I'll see an occasional 360 and older Lambo, but I've never any Aventadors, GTR's, 458's, GT3's, etc. until stumbling upon the youtube videos. Great stuff.
Primanti Brothers sandwich, recommended for any out of towners visiting da Burgh next week.
Did anyone here make the C & C?
Dropped off my car to have the OEM springs put back on, Friday, will pick it up tomorrow, so I was NSX-less this weekend. I will see if I can make the 30th
Andy, I assume you are aware of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix every year held in Schenley Park. This is an event that encompasses two consecutive weekends, numerous car shows in various parts of the city during the week and culminates with the actual Vintage Car Race on the final weekend. See the link below. if you want a true sampling of the many fine exotics and collector cars in the Pittsburgh area, this is the place to see them.
This year I understand that the TV program "Chasing Classics" will be filming a segment during this event.
Thanks for the reminder John. It seems I am never in town in July during that week. Again as it turns out, I'll be in Columbus on July 21 but I plan on attending the Sunday 22nd car show for sure. Drop a line if you are in town for it this year!
A video from the June 16th.
Just checking in here to see if anyone is meeting up and going to the PVGP this Saturday.
I plan to make it tomorrow. See you there?
i will be there in my Formula Red '93!
I didn't see this reply until just a few moments ago. We went and it was raining down there. Was still a good time and we ended up with a decent caravan to PittRace afterwards. Turned out to be a great day.
No worries! Was raining when I got there. Didn't seem to be too many cars at this one likely due to the rain, and I didn't see any good looking red NSX so I didn't stick around too long. Glad the day turned out good!
Western PA / Eastern OH'ers: PGH cnc is back up again. Tomorrow May 4th at Echo Restaurant in Cranberry on Rt 228 near Westinghouse WHQ (where I work).
Just learned about it a few minutes ago. Had no plans to go but might go for fun if I hear from anyone else here - would go close to 9am so I can make a 1am birthday party down in Elizabeth at 1...
I'm going to do my best to get the three GPW coupes in Pittsburgh (2 currently, but will be 3 after May 11) to show up to at least one of these together later this summer.
