         The Van Nuys Cruising Association announced Friday that after a 25 year absence, cruising will return to Van Nuys Blvd on Wednesday, June 10th at 8pm. They ask that there are no burn-outs, light to light runs, open headers, drugs or alcohol, etc. Please keep it cool and do not engage in any illegal activities.
         Let your club members know and CRUISE COOL!!!!1975race.jpg

  Imagine if you will, a cruise route 5 miles long, 3 lanes wide each direction  with bumper to bumper traffic of nothing but Corvettes, hot rods, muscle cars, vans, trucks, & VW's. That's what is was in the 60's and 70's before the AUTHORITIES shut it down in the early 80's.. It was a ritual growing up in the San Fernando Valley...Corvette Summer was filmed there, Hollywood Knights too...Hot Rod magazine Car Craft and others were always there..
     Now everyone is much older and there are young people who've heard the stories and want to experience what once was...The mystique of The Boulevard....
          Should be interesting....So far the response on some other board has been astounding....

Very cool! In the early 80's I cruised Whittier Blvd. in Whittier, CA and at that time I had a '73 340 Duster. Good Times!

Hey Reid,
That sounds like it'll be great!

I will be there. I used to cruise 4th street in San Rafael in the mid '70's and then Van Nuys in 1980 when I moved down to LA. Had a '69 Chevelle. Too much fun and so many great memories. I will look for you Reid in that '72 beauty. Reid, do you ever make it out to Super Car Sunday in Calabasas (Valley Circle and the 101) in the Von's Mall P-lot? Not many C3's there, but lots of great cars and great C1's and C2's. It's the last Sunday of every month.
Best to the board.

La Mesa Ca (San Diego area) Every Thursday night 6 to 9 they park hot cars (mostly custom rods) along the street and you can walk, eat and talk while looking at all of the rods.  It goes on through out the summer so I do not think it has started yet but will soon.  If you have a vacation in San Diego make sure you include a Thursday night in La Mesa.  It is run by the Over The Hill Gang.  You want to see some of the cars look at the web site.  I know they are not Vetts but when mine is running I will bring it down to the Thursday gathering.



If anyone wants to find out when it starts

The Woodward Cruise is still alive and kicking in the suburbs north of Detroit.  It may not be three lanes each direction but it IS 2 lanes each direction and stretches for about 12 miles...bumper to bumper!  People plan a year in advance just to get parking for this cruise.  And the participants are from all over the world as well.  Cruising is one thing, sitting in traffic is another!  I prefer to do my "cruising" on the open road with the wind in the cabin and the sun on my face.  For Woodward I drive the family car and walk (and drool sometimes) and eat and talk and watch, and usually end up with whiplash, my head never stops turning.
