Recently, in the City of Brotherly Love, an automotive time capsule was unleashed called Radwood Philly. Cars from the 1980s and 1990s were spread across the Philadelphia Navy Yard, but cars were only part of the story.

The 1980s and 1990s offer some great nostalgia, and along with the cars, there are plenty of other ways to experience those decades at Radwood Philly. Motorcycle enthusiasts were welcome to bring their 1980s and 1990s rides, and attendees were encouraged to dress in their favorite throwback attire. Plenty of BMX bikes, bright colors and mag wheels were sprinkled throughout, and there was even an area to take a "Pepsi Challenge-like" Cola challenge.

Originally started as a West Coast event, I estimate around 500 cars and motorcycles attended the first Radwood event to visit the Northeast United States. The event is already confirmed to come back to Philadelphia next year, and it's coming to Los Angeles in early December.

Exotics, luxury sedans, vans, sport coupes, BMX bikes, boomboxes: the event had it all. Here are some of my favorite shots and vehicles that caught my eye at the event -- and here's my full 40-image album for more pictures from the event.

Remember those BMX bikes I mentioned? Here is a showcase of a bunch of them including old school boomboxes and a special guest cameo at the end of the line.

If there is a Radwood event coming in driving distance to you, I suggest you go. It is a one-of-a-kind experience -- and attending will trigger feelings and thoughts of "the good ol' days" and the fun you had living in the '80s and the '90s. When you leave the event all you want to do is stop by your local Blockbuster Video, oh wait... back to 2018.

If you attended Radwood Philly, what were some of your favorite vehicles or experiences? Drop them in the comments below, I would love to hear about them.
