This website features a series of black and white photographs that my friends and I took back in the fall of 1978 and spring 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!

Photo Galleries. Under this menu selection you can select various photo galleries for viewing. Each gallery contains about 12 photos and more galleries will be posted as time permits (note: I have about 500 photos in my collection and all of these photographs, derived from the original negatives, have to be painstakingly prepped and spotted before posting). These photos can be viewed as is, individually enlarged and advanced manually, or they can be presented in a timed slideshow format.
