In the interest of full disclosure, I am one of the organizers of Radwood and while I regularly contribute to this site, I was encouraged to bring a piece of my car show to FLATSIXES.com. I was way too busy working to make sure the event ran smoothly to take many photographs of my own, but my friend Matt Brown contributed pictures for you to peruse in this post.
For those who don’t know, Radwood is an 80s and 90s car show that celebrates the lifestyle and totally tubular-ness of the 1980s and 1990s. We started this show back in 2017, and have held seven shows since. The most recent of those was in Los Angeles at the famed Petersen Automotive Museum a couple of weekends ago. It was an incredible time, and here is a gallery, split into aircooled and watercooled love
We had almost 400 cars in total, over 3000 attendees turn up, and it was a raging success. We had a DJ plus live music, a Cola Challenge booth, and a skateboarding exhibition in which pro skater Sal Barbier jumped over a Porsche! While the only stipulation for the show was that your car be built between 1980 and 1999, Porsche was the second most represented marque, following BMW. SoCal Yuppies won’t ever quit. Matt Farah brought out his newly Safari’d Cassis Red beauty, and automotive celebrities from Porsche pro-racer Pat Long to George “Motoman” Notaras (lead image) to Petersen Founding Board Chairman Bruce Meyer were on hand. So many people dressed in period attire to really get into the spirit.
