Another rare car, a Saab 900 2-door notchback, it had Turbo badges, but I'm fairly sure this model only was available as an S:

K-car wagon, said Reliant on the tailgate, but had Aries grille:

Do the smaller pics load faster? I figured I would try them out and if you want to see larger you can click on the pic.

Wow lot of neat imports in there. I'm also glad there's some appreciation for the K-cars. I like that '81 Granada, there's one of those around here as well as a 1982 model that both run and drive.

The cars you said didn't appear at the 80s/90s car meet (Ford Escorts/Tauruses/Tempos/LTD Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis/Cadillac/etc) are still daily drivers for some folks around where I live, I never see any of them go to car meets either :grin:

This past Sunday was Radwood in Philadelphia, a show dedicated to cars of the 80s and 90s. It attracted mainly the yuppie cars of the era, mainly European and Japanese cars, with some Chrysler K-car derived models, including several rare Euro-spec and JDM cars. Lots of BMWs, Porsches, Benzes and VWs. Japan was represented by Toyota Supras, Mitsubishi sports cars (Starions/Conquests/3000GTs), Integras and Subarus (courtesy of Subaru of America, who's headquarters are across the river in Cherry Hill, NJ). I saw there were over 600 cars.

So what was missing from the 80s/90s? There was a lack of GM cars, only saw a few Camaros, a couple Cutlasses, an El Camino and a Riviera. No A's or J's or X's, B's or C's or H's. No Cadillacs, Saturns or Pontiacs. No pickups, vans or SUVs. No captive imports. It was bizarre.

Ford was slightly more represented, but not by much. No Tauruses, Escorts or Tempos. Just a few Mustangs and one each of Probe, Contour SVT, T-Bird Turbo, LTD CV, Econoline, F-150 and Bronco. The only Mercury was a Colony Park. I don't recall any Lincolns.

Chrysler had several K-cars, Daytonas, CSX Shelby Shadows, a Sundance, a Caravan Turbo, an Omni and Charger GLHS, a Spirit R/T, a Ram Wagon and a Chrysler TC. No LeBaron converbiles or Fifth Avenues or Dynastys.

From Japan, there were no Civics or Camrys that I noticed. There were a couple Accords, Corollas and Celicas. Only saw two Mazdas, one RX-7 and one Miata. There weren't many Nissans/Datsuns. Not many Japanese tuner cars (which I'm fine with).

From Europe, there weren't many Audis, only a few Volvos and Saabs and no Maseratis or US-spec Alfa Romeos or other roadsters (Fiat/MG/Triumph). I did count at least 4 DeLoreans and several Euro-spec Alfas, Citroens and Lancias.

The highlights:

One of the Conquests/Starions, a Euro-spec Alfa Romeo 155 V6, and Audi Quattro coupe:

I slept late that day and didn't get there until after noon (the city is about an hour drive for me), after about an hour there were three raindrops and the cars started leaving, so I ended up missing a bunch. I wanted to hit this show since it had a different theme than most.

And there were two SVX's there, one from Subaru of America and one from a regular owner. Same thing with the XT's.
