There will be a special display area for DMC DeLorean Cars at the 2021 Rock N Rad Show!
There is perhaps nothing more iconic of the rad era than the DMC DeLorean!
Back in May 2021, the The Historic Vehicle Association (HVA) announced the newest car to hitch its National Historic Vehicle Register, an inventory and collection of documentation of historically significant automobiles. which car is that the instantly recognizable DeLorean DMC-12 time machine from the well-known sci-fi movie “Back to the Future”.
Because of Covid, our inaugural event was delayed by more than a year, so all of these things: The HVA designation, the DeLorean "screaming" and 80's & 90s vibe and us getting "back the the future" is why we are featuring special DeLorean display smack dab in the center of Rock N Rad 2021!
If you know of someone who needs to bring their DeLorean, send them this registration link!

We've been asked what qualifies as a Rock N Rad era Car? Does it have to be built between January 1, 1980 and December 31 1999.
From the outset our entire team agreed that certain vehicles that where iconic in the 80's actually had their roots in earlier years. Certain cars that became iconic after the year 2000 where created in the 1990's.
So what qualifies?
If the vehicle model was sold in the 1980's or 1990's an didn't have significant design changes prior to or after that period, then we would welcome it to Rock N Rad, The Trans Am Gen 2 shown above was sold in the early 80's before the Gen 3 was introduced. The Gen 2 underwent several facelifts and that's where it gets a bit tricky. Ideally we want 80's and 90's cars in the show but if it's on the edge or the model has not have any significant changes from an earlier or later period, then it is welcome to be in the show.
So, yea, that '78 TA pictured above is welcome.
All Gen 4 Chevy Malibus that were introduced in 1978 and ran until 1983 are acceptable. A 1977 Mailibu Gen 2 does not qualify for Rock N Rad. That doesn't mean it's not a cool car, it just means its not the period of car for our show.
Not to worry though! We will have an adjoining parking area for the other cool cars! We hope that helps you understand what we're looking for. It's and 80's ~ 90's cars show so we'll like to stick with the theme. We can't wait to see what you bring!!
We've got some more cool registrations to share with you guys! A Lamborghini, Porsche, Afla Romeo, VW's and another Fiat X 1/9!
Remember to post on our Facebook Group when you register so we can grab your rad ride and share it here!
The Rock N Rad Team in conjunction with Allegheny County Parks is excited to announce that Spin Doctors will be the featured band the evening of August 29 after the Rock N Rad Car show.
Spin Doctors are an American rock band from New York City, best known for their early 1990s hits "Two Princes" and "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong", which peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 7 and No. 17, respectively.
Spin Doctors's debut studio album Pocket Full of Kryptonite was released in August 1991. The band continued to play extensive live shows, gaining grassroots fans, as the album was mostly ignored commercially. In the summer of 1992, the band toured with the first lineup of the H.O.R.D.E. festival, sharing the stage with fellow jam bands Widespread Panic, Blues Traveler, and Phish.
That summer, commercial popularity heated up, as radio and MTV began playing "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" and "Two Princes", with the videos directed by filmmaker Rich Murray (who would direct many of the band's videos). The album went Gold in September 1992, and then received another boost in sales after the band's appearance on Saturday Night Live in October 1992.
Additional videos and singles followed for "What Time Is It", "How Could You Want Him (When You Know You Could Have Me?)", and "Jimmy Olsen's Blues". By June 1993, the album went Triple Platinum.
Ultimately it sold over five million copies in the U.S. and another five million overseas, and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

COVID-19 NOTICE: Due to the uncertainty of the pandemic and the planning delays caused by it, we are going to postpone the inaugural #ROckNRad show until 2021.
We hope you understand that there are many moving parts to make the event happen that require sponsors, vendors, and entertainment to arrange transport, travel, hotels, equipment rental and set up. We're going to put everything on hold until things settle down, we can lock down all the plans, and restrictions have been lifted for the sponsors to travel here.
