This website features a series of black and white photographs that my friends and I took back in the fall of 1978 and in the first half of 1979 when cruising Van Nuys Blvd. on a Wednesday night was the thing to do. All of the photos were taken from the sidewalk along the boulevard in roughly the same location. The photo collection depicts some of the people and vehicles that made this such a great and memorable event here in the San Fernando Valley (Los Angeles), California. While some of the people in these photos took it upon themselves to “pose” for the camera, we feel that these shots truly reflect what it was like to cruise the boulevard back in the day. We hope you enjoy them!
