In 1974 at Butler, they had a parade of 714 vans through downtown main street Butler. I use to have a couple t-shirts that said "Remember Butler 75, Van Power Forever, Boogie On. SFS60, what year did we get all the rain, they were calling the van run, Remember Mutler, because of all the mud and vans stuck. I am thinking it was 1977.

That is Awesome Meanmachine. I'm so bummed I have no clue what happened to my plaques from the 70's out here on the West Coast. We were on opposite coasts ; but No doubt enjoying the times and Vanning Lifestyle.

Hell, I might have been there ! From 1975 to about 1980 I spent almost every nice-weather weekend chasing van events. I lived on Long Island and ran all over the Northeast. Had a couple of van buddies and the three of us would take off without hesitation. Occasionally, we'd drive five or six hours to a non-existent event, so much for word of mouth. No big deal, we always carried camping and fishing gear. And visiting new watering holes could often be entertaining...... The good old days.
