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 the fall of 1978 and the spring of 1979, depicting a once longstanding tradition of cruising the Boulevard on a Wednesday night in Van Nuys (Los Angeles), California. While this famous cruising event (a movie based on this came out in 1979) 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: today, there is still a once a month cruising event, but it will never be the same as it was in the old days).
