The unfortunate FACT is.
Van owners with nice daily driver vans who have never been to a van event,think /assume that vanners have the same attitude that the Car Guys have....

Well i attend a car show / cruise night almost every Saturday night to show off one of my vans. I get a good response from car guys and specters. There is this downfall at car shows. Showing up with a van is a deadly sin. Panels are ok but Vans are not. Depending on the car show is best to call in advance to see if they will allow your van to be in that show. I have done this a few times and about half of the shows don't allow vans. Some of the bigger shows do and i am going to be attending a Shiners Car show in Chesapeake,Va later this year that allows vans to show. Anyone wishing to join me give me a shout back. From what i have seen on the internet date is August 18th.

just don't forget that when someone does something "rude" or says something to you taht is MEANT to PISS you off and in TURN ...YOU GET pissed off and start acting the SAME way they started....THATS WHY THEY DID IT IN THE FIRST PLACE....to PISS YOU OFF! If you want to give that attitude right back to them, does THAT make YOU better or the SAME as them , or worse? Usually when someone is rude to someone in fromt of others....everybody else knows it too and you ARE the better person by remaining calm ( let THEM continue to look like an ASS).
Now I'm NOT sayin that is someone STARTS something phyisical with you that you should let them harm you or ANYBODY else( vanner or not). If they slap you....KICK THEIR ASS..... HARD!!!! BUT the LAST thing we need is to be PERCIEVED as a routy bunch of troublemakers or a super "sensitive" bunch ( thus giving EVERYBODY the oppurtunity to say" THAT's WHY VANNERS are outcasts and THAT's why we aer excluded from the "custom vehicle scene").
I have NEVER met a higher QUALITY group of individuals than vanners. Compassionate, good hearted, generous ,LIFE TEMPERED , kind , inovative , creative , resourceful...EVERY quality that folks SHOULD aspire to be. YUP ...we HAVE OUR ISSUES!!!! ( I for SURE got mine), BUT the issues in life is NOT was makes us, its HOW we deal with the STUFF that sets us apart.....PROUD TO BE 100% Vanner!!!!

I 2nd that!

This is very interesting to me, I didn't know there was an issue with vans at car shows, of course the last custom van I had was 20 years ago. Our cruise-ins and shows start this month so I will see, I do not consider mine a showvan but I might enter it in a couple to see what is said.

Then that why he was pissed ...I didnt argue with him and walked away....3 hrs later was the tee shirt thing...It was his vender that got pissed....I know when I go out in my van I rep all vans, so my attitude was good ( safety meeting brownies ) ....I was more pissed after I got home and had time to think about what they did...

This happen on Sat...on thrus when I reg'ed he saw me drive in and the pastor yelled "Hell ya thats what we need"... but he was not a judge...just the host....East County Cruisers put on the show and did the judging...

Ya know I should have listened to my van...

It had not dripped a drop in 3 yrs....I drove the 93 to the show ( 2 blocks ) and when I got there and parked it was dripping oil...I think my van was puking on the show floor....It didnt want to be there...should have listen to my van....

And now 3 days later it doesnt leak any more not a drop.....strange

Yup...the other day a supplier of mine is having a car show to promote the stuff he sells and i asked about bring my rig ( ELECTRONIX / LIGHTS GALORE ( WHAT THEY want to promote)) and HE SAID ...oh like the old hippie STONER van ( like THAT'S a BAD thing)..then paused...then said ...well send me pictures of iy and "we'll see"...I JUST laughed it off....I GUARANTEE!!!!!! when i send pictures of my van...he WILL WANT ME THERE...I DO THAT stuff to promote MY business ( small corporate sponsored shows ...don't sell anything there....but i've got some GREAT CONTRACTS for corporate vehicles out of them), NOT THEIRS.....but hey ...I'll play YOUR game and use YOUR promotional dollars to promote MY business, and HOPEFULLY ( for them) it will be with some of their products...but not necessarily.
Anybody who takes their van to a car show KNOWS THIS...VANS get the most attention and "stirs" the most imagination in the minds of the folks who "gaze" upon them....( NOT arrogant...just FACT). I LOVE going to a small corporate car show and be 1 van amoung 25-30 cars....PIECE O CAKE!.....I WILL get calls from it...ALL I have to do is show up, open the van, and THEN do what i do best ( RUN MY MOUTH about the van and what the stuff on it can DO FOR THEM or their company).
My van dosen't have a high dollar paint job ( just STOCK PAINT), NO expensive wheels ( $100 "shiney" hub caps), no chop or fancy fiberglass do-dads, no big fancy engine ( ALL OF WHICH ARE GREAT THINGS)...MINES ALL STOCK...except my custom interior built to PRODUCE sales at new car dealerships and body shops and the like...Its a TOOL...It's FUN to use this tool and to learn how the tool can benifit in different situations.MY VAN to ME...is EVERYTHING a vanner could want( sleep in it , carry all my stuff i need with me, looks cool ( IS COOL..just ask me) PLUS************** Helps me to produce an INCOME , I'm always "home" with my van.................THERE I GO AGAIN...Blablabla


100 percent VANNER!
