That last time vans – not minivans, real 'man vans' – were cool for carrying anything other than cargo or clandestine operatives, the public didn't know what the Internet was, "Daisy Duke" referred to a character and not her jean shorts, and BA Baracus was pitying fools once a week on national television.
But don't tell that to the Vandoleros, a Los Angeles-based brotherhood of the van that lavishes the same attentions on Sixties and Seventies tall metal boxes from Chevrolet, Ford and Dodge that we're used to seeing from Porschephiles and vintage car owners. Members discovered their van love early, back in a time when a guy in a van could roll down the street in your neighborhood honking his horn and a horde of kids would climb in and be taken to the drive-in... then be returned home safely. We'd love to find a place in America where this is still practiced.
While we begin our search, you can watch the boys in the van gang in the video below – just be forewarned, there is quite a bit of foul language.
