We have signed on as a car club partner for this event and are hopeful that we will ahve a large turnout. The event will be held as in the past at Pittsburgh Raceway Park in New Alexandria. It is a jusdged show with over a dozen classes for air and water cooled VWs. There is also a swap meet and VW dragracing. It is a great event that gets larger every year.

PVGP updates! Thank You to everyone who came to Schenley Park to help us celebrate our 25th anniversary! We couldn't do it without our members. The 2013 PVGP was just the begining of our 25th anniversary. We'll be celebrating til the PVGP next year. We still have a limited of 25th anniversary t-shirts left and a few ouf the German license plates qvailable for purchse. Please use the "contact us" tab if you are interested in purchasing either item.
For our 25th anniversary, we commissioned a limited edition run of German license plates to mark the occasion. These plates are genuine German plates, made in the same factory as the official plates used throughout Germany and Europe. They feature the German designation and European Union logo on a white reflective background and Wolfsburg registration seal and annual registration stickers. We had 25 of these plates comissioned and they weill be available for purchase at the PVGP Saturday and Sunday July 20th and 21st. Any left over plates will be offered here and on our facebook page on Monday, July 22nd. Final price is $39, and includes a black plate frame with different mounting options for your car. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these plates will be donated to the PVGP charaties.
