  • RADwood Car Show In LA 12/2/2018

    A buddy of mine was telling me about this car show, called RADwood. It's basically a car show that gives recognition to all the cool cars from the 80's and 90's that people either don't care about, didn't know about, or forgot about. But you'll still see stuff like DeLoreans, Testarossas, IROCs too... But then you'll come across something like an 88 Chrysler Town and Country Turbo (I dunno if that really exists, but you'll see oddball shit like that there).

    A bunch of people show up in full 80's and 90's garb too, so dig out those white hightops and your Winger shirt, and let's represent some SyTy! haha. It's a lil steep on the entry fee ($30), they must have raised it, cause my friend said it was only $20 last year... it's also in the LA arts district, so queue a bunch of hipsters who only like the cars because it's ironic. Should be a good time either way... here's the link. https://www.radwood.co/

    It's funny that there has to be a car show dedicated to 80's and 90's cars now, when in the 80's and 90's you'd go to a car show and see 25+ year old cars, and it was just a "car show".

      Nice! Hopefully we can get at least a few trucks to show up. Considering the amount of exposure this show is getting now, I think it'd be great to show up and get a lil positive recognition for these trucks and maybe even stir up a lil demand. Too many beat up or rusted out trucks selling online for under 10k, and just dragging down the value of the good trucks.

      Although after yesterday's episode, I'm under the gun to get mine driveable again... Got my alignment done, and then my ignition cylinder locked up, so I couldn't start the truck and had to have it towed home. I dunno if the tech at the alignment place eff'd it up or what... and my power brake booster is shot. I swear, you fix one problem and you get 2 more.
