Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix hits bucolic Westmoreland County roads

Dan Speicher

Members of the Greater Pittsburgh MG Club and Western Pennsylvania Triumph Association hit the roads in Westmoreland County on Thursday for the annual Countryside Tour as part of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, which will be held this weekend.

The Countryside Tour, which started in 2012, left the Ramada Inn in Hempfield and traveled through Ligonier and the Laurel Highlands. It included a stop at Jamison Farm in Unity Township.

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix has been held annually since 1983. Vintage car races and a car show will be held Saturday and Sunday in Schenley Park and on the Bob O’Connor Golf Course. On Friday, the “Forbes Avenue of Speed” Race Car Parade & Display will be hosted in Squirrel Hill.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
