2022 Showvans Calendar is sold out


Here's one of the original feature vans with updated pictures and info !

The history of vanning has never been fully documented. Up until a few years ago not many of us knew that organized
vanning as we know it began way
back in 1966.

The first van I ever saw was 50 years ago this year. Way back in 1971 I saw the George Barris Supervan. Over the years I've been fortunate to see it many times as it resided up this way for almost 2 decades. However in trying to put together a timeline on it, I've come up empty in some rather pertinent ways. Click on the image for some details of my search.
