These look like fun, and I always said, "Man, I would totally go if this was closer to me"

Here it is, closer to me. I'm thinking about going, but am a little confused between the two entrant tickets. Regular vs "Royalty."

Register for the event with your 1980-1999 car for $25


"Radwood Royalty" cars are cars that represent the ultimate essence of the era and are subject to organizer approval. Tickets for "Royalty" are $70 and get showcase parking + a Radwood Royalty t-shirt.
Besides an extra $20 (the basic registration and a t-shirt is $50) and showcase parking, is it worth it?

Also, is the Funagon the essence of anything?

I always try to get the t-shirt, but as desirable as the Funagon is I don't remember any famous '80s vans aside from the A-Team and the Libyans. I guess there were some on the news with all the issues of the time...

Philadelphia? ;)

I'd like to attend. We'll see.

Is showcase parking worth it? That's a question only you can answer. Do you want your car in a prominent location, or is it okay to be amongst the general crowd of cars?

If your Vanagon is minty inside it might be a good candidate for Royalty. The DWA guys will probably dig it since Warren has a super clean Vanagon.

Hell yes the Funagon is worthy! Make it a party hangout with whatever 90’s tailgating memorabilia you can find.

I had an absolute blast at Radwood LA last Dec. Flew down, rented a 1980 450SL on Turo, and got parking day-of in the show. There were a couple of Vanagons there.

It’s awesome when you do it use with appropriate clothes and accessories. I had a few items of flair (OG Members Only jacket, vintage OP t shirt, checkerboard Vans, a Swatch) but others went all out.

Definitely go. Most fun you’ll have at a car show.

wow, in my backyard. I guess I should go!

Yes you should!

I’m flying out. I just have to raid my parent’s attic in Lower Merion (home of Kobe Bryant!!! HAHA not :thumbdown:) for the right clothes, so this is a no-brainer for me.

Side note - back when he was just a mere Fresh Prince, Will Smith was running around Philly in the most Radwood-appropriate Seafoam Green Mercedes 260E with Lorinsers. I feel like I should try and find one of those.

I’d like to go, but I might be tied up with work stuff. I’ll know more soon. If you’re anywhere close to it, you should dress up, bring a car and have a blast.

It cleans up pretty good, but I can't be the judge of whether it's actually worthy. It would be nice to have a good spot, I suppose. I would be driving 2.5 hours, so might as well make the most out of it if I can.

:thumbup:

Throw a 90’s era mountain bike on the roof rack along with the box, and it’s pure gold.
Oh man, I just realized I can totally do this for next Radwood :laugh:. You saw my 25 year old Huffy Stone Mountain buried in the garage and I found the complete set of neon green accessories while digging in there a few weeks ago. Of course, the green would clash with the orange cage.

I'll be there with the Volvo! I kinda have to go, since I have the plate RADW00D...

I missed out on Atlanta because 1. I went to Monterey instead 2. I didn't really want to go anyway because the car's air conditioning doesn't work :laugh:
