This is an old show kiddies. One of the earlier CA shows and this is it's 39th year. I think this event even pre-dates some of the oldtimers that are still vanning today, crazy. Just for fun I thought I'd dig up this article on numero uno. I'm a bit confused though, this article was published in '74 as you can see, but didn't it happen in '72? Now I'm no rocket-surgeon but if this year is the 39th, that puts the first in '72. (Brad?, a little help here?) Whatever, It's prob just the lack in publications early-on, dude probably wrote the article and HotRod shelved it for a year. The first real article on vanning wasn't until '71 anyway, and it wasn't until '75ish that anything van exclusive even appeared. Anyway... 39 years, damn!
Weird to think my '72 Dodge was on the showroom floor when this event first went down.
Have fun up there guys, be crazy!
