These old-yet-rad cars are priced at a grand each. Which would you take to RadWood 2019?
Found this mixed in with the plebian toys at my Goodwill yesterday. So hell yes I bought it.
In case anyone ever doubted the Prelute was really a truck.
With the advent of events like Radwood, it’s about time we turned our attention to the last stand of the old world automobile. Most carmakers had finally recovered from the fuel crises of decade prior; with fuel injection and turbocharging soon to become a mainstay of automotive technology.
And there’s some noteworthy Oppo-ness goings on around the 6:16 mark?
Oppo after having been a passenger in a handful of Miatas I finally got to drive one. But not just any Miata, but a nicely track prepped on and I borrowed drove it for 7.5 hours to and from Radwood yesterday.
Rays-Mazdaspeed MS-03 wheels. SPLIT-THREE-SPOKE WHEELS. I would totally buy these if it weren’t for the fact shipping alone adds 60% to the buying price. Shipping is $400 and the wheels alone are $683 according to eBay.
If a Honda Prelude is too impractical and a half-ton truck too bulky, what’s a guy to do? I present: the Honda Prelute.
Can we get a roll call?! I’ve got my OneStep 2 Instant Camera ready to go.

We need more wedge car posts on Oppo, as you can never have too many wedges. I’m making the tag “Wedge Wednesday” for this. Honestly just use it any day of the week, wedges can be 24/7. Enjoy the wedge-itude responsibly :D
This is Dan, I’ve been out of town on business, so I fell behind and I’ve now published “And Tubbed” featuring Bradley Brownell from Cammed and Tubbed, as well as Jalopnik.
I graduated from high school in 1984. I lived through the Radwood era, defined now as being from the 80s to the 90s. My version was loosely based on Alex P. Keaton. Think preppy. Very preppy. No tacky weird colored sweaters. Cashmere, wool, suits, double-breasted, wool. Fine wool. Leather shoes reminiscent of My Three…
We’ll be recording at 5:00 PM Eastern with Bradley Brownell, Weekend Editor of Jalopnik, Co-Founder of Radwood, and Co-Host of the Cammed and Tubbed Podcast. The focus of the episode will be on 80's and 90's cars in the Diecast World.
The radwood shows feel like they should have been a thing for at least for 10 years now, I’m happy they exist.
The center of the automotive universe shifted this weekend to Sonoma Raceway, where we had, concurrently, Radwood 3, LeMons and Billetwood. It was a glorious weekend for the many Jalops. I participated in Radwood, with my new cool ride. You will likely guess which one is mine.
So Oppos, use this post to track who may be coming to Radwood 3 and HooptieCon/Lemons this upcoming weekend. I’ll be there, with a proper mid-90s vehicle to show off and wearing my dorkiest 90's vintage clothing. Are you bringing yourself? A car? A drone? whatever? Let your upcoming presence be known.
