This was the first Radwood event on the east coast, and it was surely one of my favorite events of this year. Radwood is a car-based celebration of 1980s and 90s culture and the stuff that showed up was extremely interesting. I’ll let the highlights do the rest of the talking for now. There’s much more to come. Enjoy!

There is always a unicorn or two that shows up for the Scarsdale Concours. This year it included this stunning Aston Martin V12 Zagato. 1 of just 150 to grace this earth of ours this car backs up its beauty with an enthusiast recipe for the ages… a screaming V12 engine with RWD dynamics, all controlled via a manual transmission. It’s damn close to perfection.

We love the Scarsdale Concours because it has a much more relaxed vibe than most other Concours events and while it’s not huge in size, the cars are always top notch. This year did not disappoint. We’ll let the gallery do the rest of the talking.

Vice takes an inside look at the exotic rental car business in Miami.
This is one of those unicorns you just don’t see. It’s a Gemballa Mirage GT, a heavily modified Porsche Carrera GT of which only 25 exist worldwide. This was my second time seeing this car, but the first time I was able to get any photos of it. It’s absolutely incredible.
Once the owner left I saw it fly by on the highway, 670hp V10 at full chat, and it sounded like a LeMans prototype. It’s awesome to see this car in a car show, but it was really unbelievable to see it screaming past normal traffic. It really made my day!
Enjoy the gallery!

I love Cars and Caffe because it draws the entire enthusiast spectrum, everything from beater Miatas to classic muscle cars to heavily modified cars to million dollar hypercars. It’s a real show of enthusiasm for the automobile, and there’s no other show quite like it.
I’m a firm believer that car people are largely the same, just at different socio-economic levels. The person in the E46 M3 would be the one in the Ferrari 488 if he had more money, and vice versa if the person in the Ferrari had less money. You can really see that when you go to a show like this.
Naturally, I tend to focus more on the exotics in my photos, despite me being the guy rolling up to the show in a Miata. Rest assured, I’d do the same with a Pagani if I had those sort of means.
Lots of people really love cars, and that becomes crystal clear when you’re at this show. There is hope yet for the enthusiast automobile!
Enjoy the gallery.

I love when wheels are done just right. Different enough to be distinctive, but well short of tacky. This Ferrari F12 had a perfect look in my opinion, and it was the wheels that tied it all together.

We are huge fans of Team Salamone, and we always love photographing their car because it’s one of the wildest Lambos around. Here it is at Cars and Caffe last year. The chrome and purple color scheme was some serious next level stuff. Very different from the typical Lambo fruit salad look. We love it!

The 991 GT3 RS is one hell of a track machine, and this is one of my favorite colors I’ve ever seen one in. Classic Porsche style.
Black and red is one of my favorite color combos, especially on a ferocious car like a Lamborghini. It just looks dangerous and intimidating, like nature’s warning to stay away in many species of venomous animals. It’s badass, especially on a Huracan “Spyder.”

Here’s a nice combo spot. Both are Italian, both are white, and both are turbocharged monstrosities. The 488, in particular, was quite loud, definitely modified. This is why we sat outside for lunch and it paid off.
