The winner for raddest truck may not be a truck, but rules are meant to be broken

With a competitive spirit that could shame most Olympians, you lovely Jalops submitted dozens of rad rides to our reader contest for this Sunday’s Radwood car show. It was a tough contest. The cars were very good! But in the end only three can be champions, and here they are.


After an initial elimination round at the discretion of my overlords, er, coworkers, the best entries were posted for you to vote on. Competition was fierce, but with the polls closed and the votes tallied we can announce the following winners:

Raddest Time Machine: Anthony Guerra, 1989 Saab 900S

Raddest Van/Wagon: Mike Ottati, 1994 BMW M5 Touring


Raddest Truck Song Toh, Honda Prelute


Congratulations are in order for the victors, who’ll be contacted soon with details about the lovely spoils to which they are entailed.

For the rest of you lovely people, we’d once again like to invite you to come see these rad rides and many others at Radwood. The show is this Sunday, June 24, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 395 Oyster Point Blvd, South San Francisco, CA.


Period-correct ’80s or ’90s-themed dress is highly encouraged, as is stopping by to say hi to the Jalopnik staffers attending. Myself, David Tracy, Andrew Collins, and Bradley Brownell will be on-hand, as will a special car we’re bringing for the event. Let’s just say it’s a self-driving car before those were cool, but this one has a taste for justice.

Keep it rad and I’ll catch you there.

Mack Hogan is Jalopnik's Weekend Editor, but you may know him from his role as CNBC's car critic or his brave (and maligned) takes on Twitter. Most people agree that you shouldn't listen to him.
