My bad for saying anything. My comments seem to have stirred some people up. I'm sorry for saying anything. I was just passing along credible information. Forget I said anything.
Just have fun and whatever happens, happens.
it time to stop yakkin' and get cruisin! see you all tomorrow night at rydell. bottom line: don't be a dick and we will all have fun!
time to stop yankin' ?
yeah that too.........
But it feels good, I don't care if I go blind ha ha.......
Between taking pictures for the mag I will be cruisin in my white ’67 Fastback. See you all there.
I am gonna try to make this tomorrow, either be in my green truck or on my bike. Havent cruised Van Nuys since before I was born.....
Hope all you guys have a great evening cruising Van Nuys.
Back in the 70's it was well known world wide.
Annie my wife and I arrived in LA on July 4 1979 at 10 am, first thing we do is rent a car , get a hotel room, hung out during the day then headed to Van Nuys for the Wed nite cruise we'd read so much about in New Zealand.
A couple of greenhorn Kiwi kids completely blown away by the scene.
Remember parking up in an alley to watch when these guys arrived and proceeded to give us sh*t about being on their spot.
After a bit of explaining by us they broke out the beers and we all had a awesome night.
Spent a total of seven years all up in the land of horsepower heaven. I can still remember looking to buy our first car, all the early Firebirds, GTOs, Camaros, Chevelles you wanted for under a grand.
Have a good one and drive safe guys, we'll be thinking of ya.
hey im driving my ratty ass primered car this wednesday.
first let me answer the guy who asked about the Econolines(dont forget the Dodges & the Chevy)most of the vans out there were from WHEELS of CONFUSION van club hit me up for info.I would like to add that I'm on here now cause of the cruise event so chalk up another one.I will be bringing 2 WHEELS vans out tonight and a couple of VW guys as well,and will be tryn to get hold of of the other van guys during the day.I cruised Hollywood Blvd. and the Balboa Fun Zone when I was a kid and was one of the guys who couldn't sleep when I got home after junes event it effin rocked.
See everyone down there, i'll be there hanging out of the Boattail taking pics for the mag.
+1 for the econoline, I'll be in my green 63 five window truck...
Keep both hands on the wheel!
better start washin the bird crap off my ride and put the cold 1s on ice..
does anyone know if the T shirts are printed and will be there tonight ???? If so need to bring some extra $$$
I believe so - you might want to PM VNcruiser to confirm.
Hey Graig thanks for the reply but did you notice I am a FNG perhaps he could post it on this forum so all will know and he can sell more that way. I for one will be looking for them but many may not know where or who to look for since many are like me FNG's (one day I will grow out of it I think)
Only Grouch replied to the note above... I do have a few gonna meet at my place, but think now we will just go from here in Burbank at about 6:30... beat the crowds!!!!
If I missed some one that was gonna caravan over, just post here and I will check again later or PM me. I check about 4PM then no more
Yes we have FINALLY have some tee shirts. Mrs VNCruiser will have a table in the Rydell lot. Shirts are $20 and will help support future cruises. We have some help
with traffic control, so please don't diss the boys in black. Rydell is offering the Tommy's truck, but please remember to also use the other food business on Van Nuys
besides for their bathrooms. Thanks Mrs VNCruiser
can you post a pic or link to the T shirts I live in upstate NY and would love to cruise Van Nuys, but it will probably never happen so a T shirt maybe the closest I ever get !!
What's that line? Oh yeah, "I am the captain of my ship and of course, you know my wife, the Admiral?"
GREAT and a big thank you to Mrs CRUISER. I for one will not only get a few to wear but will frame one this is history in the making people. I was there last month and as long as I can get out of bed and am breathing will be there for the rest I may get to old to drive but hell I'll be in that wheel chair as a looky loo when the time comes
Save me a medium tee, vncruiser. Thanks
Very generous of them for the Tommy's truck. But, I still think it's a BAD idea. People need to cruise for food. Do NOT make it convenient for the armchair hot rodder
Tommy's? What about the Bob's Big Boy truck? Oh well, see you all out there tonight I'll be on the Ural w/sidecar.
I was planning on cruising up from Venice. Now there's a fire in Sepulveda Pass! Traffic is not looking too good....
Hay boys and girl, just a heads up, the fire in the Sep, pass is blowing lots of smoke and ash thu-out the valley......so you guys with your trailer queens bring lots of WAX....................See Ya you all
The traffic in the sep pass is moving normal for this time of day. I looks like they are getting a handle on it now
