This is a tough one to write. More than a month into quarantine from this virus that threatens to crash the world’s economy, what could I possibly say to help, inspire, or support anyone who is struggling?

I think what we can do is take inspiration from the adaptability and tenacity of the people around us and the businesses that are finding creative ways to respond to and survive the crisis.

Radwood held a virtual car show on Instagram recently, and the hashtag #VRadwood has more than 1,000 posts as I write this, just two days later. @RadwoodOfficial monitored all the posts, compiled their favorites, and solicited votes for the best cars in each of several categories. Gift cards were awarded to the winners of each.
