    the Radwood 80s and 90s car show is currently in the Northeast at the Philadelphia Naval Yard. car entry is $30 and cars in the show should be there at 9am. tickets are on sale until Feb 29th. I'd be cool for a bunch of us FMJ guys to meetup there. I've already entered my 88 Gran Fury and i hope to see more Diplomats/Fury's and Fifth Aves there. tickets here. hope to see some of you there! RADwood Philly 2020 - 1980s/1990s Car Show

    This is a pretty cool spot. The Philadelphia Navy yard is a former active base, now a nostalgic industrial park. The old inactive ships are moored in the basin. A good number of buildings are re-purposed but retain the old leaf laid brick. I've had my car over there for photos. There is a nice river walk route from the foot of the Broad Street Pier to the north about a 1/2 mile. The old ferry landing is still there, but no ferry, sorry. It is right off Route 95 and it is not congested at all. Very open space with the old streets of the former base. IMG_0829.JPG IMG_0830.JPG IMG_0831.JPG IMG_0832.JPG IMG_0833.JPG IMG_0834.JPG

    who knows maybe you can just hang out outside the show. i'm sure they'll still love your car. there is still general admission for guest so you can go look at cars.

    I don’t see to many shows for ‘80’s or ‘90’s cars that that part is cool.
    The location is a spot I would love to visit (other than it’s a bit too far for me to drive).

    Be sure to take lots of pictures.

    I'd love to see all that but my car is a year too old and then there's that 1,100 miles each way thing.

    Yeah, my 77 and 79 are just "too old" - if i ever thought I'd say that. My more modern mopar could make a showing. It is a youngster. Only 23 years old. binks n gummy.jpg

    thats a nice ram. it is an 80s and 90s car show so the ram might fly. i wonder if they would make an excuse for a 79 as its only one year before 1980 but the difference between the 70s and 80s to to great, and the show would fill up with huge malaise sedans. i actually wouldn't mind that...
