Cruisin' Van Nuys
Lately, we've been a bit overstoked about the resurgence of cruising on Southern California's Van Nuys Boulevard. In the '70s and early '80s, Van Nuys was a Wednesday night fashion show that drew cruisers from all over the state. The proof is in the stacks of photos in our archives featuring high-jacked street machines wearing Super Charger tires, wheel flares, and pearl graphics. This '71 Trans Am was shot on the boulevard for the Mar. '79 cover as part of the kickoff for the Cruisin' USA series that visited the loop between Sherman Way and Burbank Boulevard to get a look at the feathered hair and denim. The owner of the car is Sally Annette, who is standing by the driver door, and her copilot is Debbie Rose in the passenger seat. Both women traveled from Fullerton, California, every Wednesday then to the Whittier digs on Fridays to cruise the TA.
