Just a standard slick top Fire red car with red interior and a digital dash. Was a 350tpi auto car. I still have the motor in pieces but not the trans. It's definitely a project and I'm focused on my Caprice as far as doing a major build right now. It's still listed in the for sale section and I would let it go unreasonably cheap if it was for a challenge build.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do car wise, but I just set a CL alert for Honda Spree and I'm shopping for a mesh midriff tank top and shorts short enough that Stampie is going to ask me for my number. 

If you find a Gyro, let me know.

I also just want to see someone attempt to limp a 27 year old 7 bolt 4G63 through the weekend, hopefully swapped into a Mitsubishi Expo or Dodge Colt. 

I also want to see a duster turbo and AWD Tempo with a manual transmission. 

Oh I know the Westside dudes could do it- pretty sure I saw em do it about this many years ago, in fact.

I will bring my $2008 Challenge Car (Exhibition Class) in honour of the 2020 Radwood Class....it may even have some period correct WRC livery by then.

Late 90s makes me picture mini trucks with crazy paint and fiberglass sound system enclosures built into the bed.

Agreed-keep engine swaps period correct. Not hard to do, and will really boost authenticity.

Not a fan of limiting the EFI to late 90's. The stuff that came out in the early 2000s is visually identical and makes turbo Hondas much less explody.

I may be biased in my reccomendations...

Ahem the turbo honda with the broken engine was properly tuned. The turbo honda with the broken transmission had an FPR and a hood version of an AFC both 90s correct. 

Can we find somebody involved with the actual Radwood shows to add some perspective? What's more "Rad" minty CRX? Lowrider? Testerossa made of cardboard? Special class based around a car show is probably going to be heavily concours dependent some pointers would be welcome

Maybe the magazine can reach out to the folks who started the radwood show and perhaps talk one of them into being a guest judge.

Radwood, which seems to be a play on The GoodWood Festival of Speed and the '80's word Radical was started by a guy who was very active on GRM a long time ago.

The office might consider if there is a cross opportunity here for a Radwood Gainesville Festival that could happen simultaneously.  I could envision more spectators at The Challenge if lets say there was a Radwood show that Saturday at the dragway in the sun while the Challenge cars were separately being shown under the pavilion

Good find!  

Just last week I locally came across this...   The price is too high but maybe once the snow flies the ad will grow old and grow cheaper.  https://sandusky.craigslist.org/cto/d/vermilion-chevy-sprint-turbo/7001048709.html
