A new car show in northern California just might have the best name ever in the history of car shows. Described as Goodwood for 80s and 90s cars, Radwood will be held on June 3 in San Francisco, California.
Basically, 80s and 90s costumes are mandatory, and any cars of any country of origin are eligible, as long as it was built between January 1, 1980 and December 31, 1999. This is a concept we can definitely get behind.
Modifications are allowed, but they must be of the era. “This is not about stance, because that’s not period correct,” co-founder Art Cervantes explained. In addition, there will be a special section for “Radwood Royalty,” which Art described to us as “cars that capture the essence of the era, like a white on white Testarossa or a black Back to the Future Toyota pickup.”
If you would like to participate, you can register here. The show will open from 8am to 2pm. Admission is free.
Ah man, Ben you gotta bring your Celica Supra out to this!
I’d love to, but I’m wary of driving it 6 hrs on the interstate.
Come on, your car can’t be that fragile. And freeway driving is pretty easy on a car, constant RPM, no worse than your typical Sunday drive, unless it’s only to the nearest Tommy’s.
Well, I have much shorter sidewall tires on it, so it wants to rev a lot higher at highway speeds. It has a time bomby automatic too.
Initial D “technically” started in the 90’s, as one of the Eurobeat songs references the 90’s, so we all got at least one in.
Initial D is set (at least in the beginning,) in 1996, so it’s golden.
Boy is that a stretch calling it “Goodwood” for ’80’s and ’90’s cars with no timed runs.
That’s sorta easy. There’s no where they could do any runs at Brisbane Marina. Sure, there’s the hills nearby where they shot the Bullitt car chase, but I’m sure they don’t need a bunch of cars racing around there, either.
Stuff like this makes me really consider re-locating out west.
Not the Bay Area, unless you are making bank.
Oh trust me I know Lol. I got tons of family that live in the Bay area, specifically Mountain View so I know all about it
Back in the 90s, I was paying $750/mo for a Grupe 2 bedroom in Sacramento. THE SAME apartment in Union City was $1500. I can only imagine what it is now…
Please tell me you’ve got someone covering this
