Pittsburgh World of Wheels

Pittsburgh World of Wheels

The first weekend in February usually means it’s time for the annual Pittsburgh World of Wheels, held in the David Lawrence Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh Pa. The show is part of the Championship Auto Shows group that puts on some of the best in the country. This ISCA judged event has been gaining ground as an elite event since it’s move to the Convention Center a few years ago. Despite an all-too-short racing season here in the Midwest, it offers the largest amount of indoor car shows that are within a few hours of each other. In fact, there isn’t another area in the U.S. that has this much winter fun within a comfortable driving distance.
