On a cultural note, PAST, INC. also presents a look back at Cruising Van Nuys Blvd. in the late 1970s. This website includes numerous B&W photos, taken by John E. Atwood in late 1978 and early 1979, depicting a once longstanding tradition of cruising “The Blvd.” on a Wednesday night in Van Nuys (Los Angeles), California. While this infamous cruising event primarily ended in the early 1980s, many people fondly look back at these bygone days as a time of innocent fun when cruising this street in the San Fernando Valley was the place to be seen and showoff the some fantastic vehicles (note: there is a 1979 comedy film entitled “Van Nuys Blvd. based on these times and today, there is still a once a month cruising event, but it will never be the same as it was in the old days. ”).
