I was there at that Disneyland Van Happening. If I remember right there was over 5000 vans there. They charged us $10.00 a van to get in plus parking no matter if you had one person in your van or ten. It was a great run and was on Superbowl Sunday.

That parking lot is now the site of Disney's California Adventure park.
Great one day run. Nothing in the parking lot but Vans, except for the security golf carts running all over the place tring to figure just exactlly where that "funny" burning smell was coming from !

that funny smell was everywhere. I had a pound of good smoke there plus a hundred tabs of orange sunshine (LSD) and a jar of whites. We rented a room at the Disney Hotel so we could watch the superbowl. Weird Harolds club ( Channel Island Vans) got kicked out of the park for flipping one of the canoes over.

I hear ya on that . Back in the 70s we had van happenings every weekend. Sometimes a half dozen different ones on the same day so we would hit as many as we could. Can't remember much about any of them. I went to over three hundred van happenings back then plus countless club parties. Don't know how I managed to stay alive with all the drugs, drinking, wild women etc.

You guys sound like you had a blast! I was just thinking back the other day about the seventies, ( I was 18 in 1977) and all the great times we had when we were young and wondering why in the hell we wanted to grow up so fast. I am trying to get a car and truck show together for September 2011 and had planned the focus for this year to be on vans and the pickup derivatives. I am in Yorktown, VA. If anyone is nearby and might be interested in attending or helping out you can contact me at twday@twdaybuilders.com. or call me at 757-291-6247.
