Pitt Race has actually changed a lot since SAAC 34.  The owners of VIR have since purchased the track and invested a lot of money.  It is now approx 3 miles long, which is twice as long as it was for the last convention.  The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand will be going on at Pitt Race on July 13-14 for the big bore cars (i.e. Shelbys) culminating in the vintage races on July 20-21 at Schenley Park in downtown Pittsburgh near Pitt and Carnegie Mellon Universities.  It's there were over 1,000 volunteers put on the only vintage race in the country still run on city streets and where you will see 3,000 cars in the show on Saturday all over the golf course and 300,000 spectators.  A must see event.  Hope to see you there!

There's a neat "adult" store along "80" somewhere. Kopec and Pardee stopped there and the hostess was nude.

Someone should put that one on the list. Wait. That was 35 years ago. She's probably all wrinkled and sagging. Nix that.

Was it this place

After missing SAAC-43 due to a family event planned much further in advance, I'm looking forwards to returning to Pittracce (BR) and SAAC-44 next year. I've driven the track, and it's alot of fun, many elements of other tracks, including Monticello and others.

Planning on being back in tech, car show, and making the event happen. Will have my noisy FFR out on track too!

Waiting to see how the details unfold.

Holiday Inn again as the host hotel?

Not to be confused with this Roadside America; a more family friendly roadside stop.

I don't know if this is the place to ask this question, but is it written in the Club's bylaws that shows have to be on the coasts? There hasn't been a National in the middle of the country since, well, ever. No, Utah, Wisconsin and Indianapolis are not in the middle of the country. I'm talking about places like Dallas, Oklahoma City, Little Rock, Kansas City, Omaha. Even St. Louis or Denver would be more central than any place that's hosted a show so far.
Every post I make comes with an implied request for corrections. I'm here to learn.
