Getting your Hot Rod Fix at the Pittsburgh World of Wheels

Another World of Wheels has come and gone in Pittsburgh, PA, AKA The Steel City, and it did not disappoint. Once again the wife and I hit the road to take in a car show, shoot some photos, and just enjoy being out of the house. After scraping off the ice from the previous day’s storm we were on our way for the 4 hour trip to the David Lawrence Convention Center in Downtown Pittsburgh. I actually find driving fairly relaxing so the trek went pretty quick.

There was something for everyone. If you like high end customs there were over-the-top rods like John Mai’s beautiful 1933 Willys Coupe.


Into race cars? Drag City USA was on hand displaying several vintage dragsters like the 1967 Bounty Hunter that was driven by Connie Kalitta.


Want to learn something? A number of airbrush artists were on hand demonstrating their craft.


Feeling charitable? You could have bid on some of the art that the pinstripers were creating all weekend.


Were there rat rods? Yup. There were many rats and kustoms including this 1930 Essex kustom by Jeff Shuman.


And what would the World of Wheels be without stuff that just makes you scratch your head like Joe Bellisario’s 1970 Chevrolet Corvette Wagon?
