Does anyone remember a wide body custom van from the movies? I can picture it in my head, I think it was based on a Chevy van and had wide square flares like 80s wide body race cars but can’t remember the movie. I have found some other cool examples but trying to track a picture of that van down

Watching "RAD" from 1986, BMX movie, with my kiddos last night and spotted all these. I think I have a slight vanning obsession, LOL!

Opening scene with a nice 76-78 Ford? I think that's the only years with round headlights right? And a sweet Dodge.

This Chevy was my favorite, but I'm a bit partial to early 3rd GEN Chevys. Like how he painted the grill with either white trim or left some of the chrome exposed.

The Good Old Days when there was basically a couple van's setting on every street. I watch the old CHiPs Highway Patrol show, always lots of cool vans cruising in the background. Back in the 1970s and early 80s, my rural community had around 15 to 18 guys who had custom vans. We used to get together on the weekends and have a kegger. Wish I would of took pics, my yard looked awesome with all the vans parked.

I wish I wasn't so young back then. I remember them being all over my area. Sadly I also remember a local wrecking yard having a whole line of them about 30 or so deep at on point in the mid 90s, then they crushed them all in the late 90's.

I hear you Meanmachine. My First Club back in the early 70's ; " United Heads " ( No S*#T ) that was the name of the club and we would meet at Shakey's Pizza in El Monte Ca. It looked so cool with all the vans. After the meeting we would cruise somewhere. Good times.

My 2nd club was "Brotherhood of Truckers" out of Whittier Ca. We always cruised the Legendary " Van Nuys Blvd " . It was off the hook and I hear it's coming back . I can't wait to take my 74" G10 out there and relive the Good Times. We would also cruise Whittier Blvd.

I had so many "polaroids" and Kodack pics. I have so very few left. None of the parties; Van runs or cruising. Just my "First" 74 G10 back in the day.
