Cruising Van Nuys Blvd. in the late 1970s Photo Gallery Index

Pontiac Tempest
Each photo gallery below contains about 12 images. Please note that this is an ongoing project, where additional images from our approximately 500 photo collection will be added to the site (please note: these photos are derived from scans of the original negatives that have to be painstakingly prepped and spotted before being presented here). Although the specific month and day when each photo was taken was is not recorded at the time, in the earlier photos, you can see the old J. C. Penny building on Van Nuys Blvd. in the background and in the later photos, this building was taken over by Valley State Bank (noted by the “Future Home of…” sign). The photos on this site are presented in the order that they were scanned and no attempt was made here to organize them chronologically.

If you would like to leave a comment or a remembrance of when you cruised “The Blvd.”, we have added a Facebook comment section to the bottom of each gallery page. It is your choice to have these comments posted publicly to Facebook or just have them remain on the individual gallery page. We greatly appreciate all of your Facebook likes and shares! Additionally, please feel free to join our “
Cruising Van Nuys Blvd in the late 1970s” Facebook Group, where we post announcements about site updates, add a few other photos, and group members can add their photos and remembrances (note: this is a closed group where the admins must approve members and only group members can see posted content).

Warning note: some of the photos presented here contain very suggestive material and mild nudity (i.e., buttocks), while other more explicit shots (i.e., those showing bare breasts) have been black-barred for privacy (read: as such, you not really seeing anything that could be considered vulgar). It is not the intent to exploit these type of shots, but rather, reflect the times and activities that occurred from an unbiased historical perspective. Nevertheless, If these type of shots offend you, please do not continue to any of our photo galleries.
