Mazda has one of the most esoteric collections of cars in the basement of their Southern California facility, and they’re looking to expand that collection with perhaps the strangest car they’ve ever produced: The Mazda Millenia S. With a supercharged Miller-cycle 2.3-liter V6 engine, this large front-wheel-drive…
Jaguar’s XJ220: Raddest car in British history, or raddest car in automotive history?
Radwood is the place to be if you love 1980s and 1990s cars, and if you want to take a car there, you’ve got a wealth of options. Here’s why so many fans of that era love the Mazda RX-7, starting with an absolutely pristine one.
If you missed the celebration of 1980s and ’90s cars and coolness known as Radwood 2, don’t worry: You can travel back in time with us right now and become one with nostalgic radness in gloriously grainy period correct video!
A couple weeks ago, we sponsored one of the greatest car shows that I’ve personally ever been to: Radwood 2. Together, with the guys from podcasts Driving While Awesome!, Cammed & Tubbed and Clutchkick, we threw down a show absolutely filled to the brim with 1980's and 1990's cars. Some people got super into it with…
Radwood 2, the 1980s and 1990s car show we co-sponsored, had an incredible amount of fantastic, rare, and unexpected 1980s and 1990s rides. It was glorious. But, amid all that glory, there was also a fierce concentration of madness, centered over a strange, second-gen Mazda RX-7 with color-shifting paint and a small…
Radwood 2 wasn’t simply a car show, or just a collection of automotive enthusiasts. It was much more than that. It was a refreshing break from the hectic present and an opportunity to relive good moments from the past.
Early Sunday morning in the oceanside community of Del Mar a freak fire claimed a few gorgeous pieces of automotive history, leaving them nothing but empty husks of misshapen metal. Luckily nobody was injured in the blaze, and the fire was contained to the garage.
Last Saturday, the very best cars that the ‘80's and ‘90's had to offer descended upon The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, California, to attend Radwood 2. There was music, food, beer and great merch. Dogs and people decked out in their best ’80s and ’90s garb. It was incredible. You were all incredible.
If you didn’t go to Radwood 2 in Anaheim this weekend, I’m about to make you feel really bad. I’m sorry.
We’ve been hyping the Radwood 2 show for weeks, and on Saturday our dreams of bringing the ’80s and ’90s back to the streets finally came to life. And because of all of you, it was excellent. Thank you.
Radwood 2 looked like a good neon time full of the old cars we actually care about. If you were stuck at home, you can relive the good old times vicariously through Jalopnik’s Instagram here, or Radwood’s main account here. We hope you all enjoyed it and weren’t hassled too much for rad props by The Man.
Wedge-shaped cars, pin stripes, skinny tires and badges that bragged about fuel injection are all coming back at Radwood 2, baby. In case you haven’t heard about this ultimate gathering of cars, motorcycles and yes, BMX bicycles from the ’80s and ’90s going down tomorrow, you better get up to speed!
Bright and early tomorrow morning, I’m taking all the toys and heading west to the Radwood 2 car show out in Anaheim, California. Before I get going, I wanted to show you all what it takes (and what it costs) to move three vehicles halfway across the United States.
The good news: Radwood 2, the sporty and dynamic 1980s and ‘90s car show, is just a few days away. It happens this Saturday, Dec. 2, in Anaheim, California. The bad news: if you wanted to display your rad car there, you’re shit outta luck. But you can still come and look at the cars.
The Mugen CF-48 wheel is not a particularly rare design. You can pretty much always find a set for sale. It’s not necessarily the prettiest wheel, either, more function than form. Yet this wheel has risen to near-legendary status in the Honda community on a wave of vintage JDM cool that you just can’t get from…
Hey kids! Are you in the Los Angeles area and have nothing to do Saturday, Dec. 2? Do you need an excuse to get out those old windbreakers, Members Only jackets and neon leotards? Then come to Radwood 2, our ‘80s and ‘90s-themed car show. It’s gonna be totally bitchin’.
I’m an absolute sucker for aftermarket wheels, and most especially those from the 1980s and ‘90s. Prior to that era most aftermarket wheels were designed for motorsport prowess, but by the ‘80s, wheel designers seemed to be allowed to design primarily for style. The market for items to provide a unique look exploded…
