The NorCal86 and 86 Drive car club had a private tour of the amazing Canepa classic and collector car showroom, museum, and workshop today. A few drivers met up for a morning drive beforehand at the Upper Crystal Spring Vista Point, at the intersection fo Highway 92 and Skyline Blvd. (SR35).

A large Audi club had filled the parking lot with eight Audi R8 coupes, and a variety of other cool cars. Our group had 2 Subaru BRZs, a Ford Focus RS, a Porsche 911, and a VW Golf Mk5.

Radwood 2017: Celebrating 80's and 90's Car Culture

The Radwood 2017 car show was held yesterday in Brisbane, along the water just south of San Francisco. Radwood is a celebration of 80's and 90's car culture. Attendees were encouraged to bring period correct cars, and also wear 80's or 90's clothing. The event was low key, the setting was great, and there were some hilarious outfits. My favorite costume was a guy dressed as an 80's business man with a giant cell phone who arrived in a really nice Subaru SVX. He was handing out cans of Tab and Fresca. I hope the Radwood organizers do this show again next year!
