No time to relax these days if you're a fan of vans. Just so much going onacross North America. This weekend there are 10 custom vans in Motorama in Harrisburg Pa, Pirates of the Caravan is in the Darryl Starbird Show in Tulsa Oklahoma and my buddies from Wheels of Confusion are doing another Slow Ride cruise through Malibu California. Next weekend 2 vanner vans will be at Detroit Autorama, Dave Jarvis will have his 9 second drag van in the center row and amazing photographer John Jackson will have the Boogie Van among all the hot rods in the basement of Cobo. Dirty Donny is doing his first solo art show called Vantastic Voyage in Santa Monica California on Saturday the 25th. Many vans are expected to show up for that. I'd love to be able to go to all these evants. I'll just have to settle for Detroit, if only we could all be so lucky.

Vanarama 2012 kicks off in St Petersburg Florida

Vanarama 2012 started off today in St Petersburg Florida at the CofC van show. Don't have all the details but I do have this picture thanks to Tim B one of the gurus of early Econolines. The show was partially sponsored by Showvans and fortunately Snotty from Moon Lite was able to bring some of the 2012 Vanarama banners down there fresh from the printer.
Vanners are getting ready to show their vans in Motorama and Autorama this month as well. Kurk from has done a great job coordinating the 10 vans entered in Motoroma and also got a call from Carlisle events this week. They want to feature vans at the 2012 Carlisle Truck Nationals which is the largest custom truck event there is. This is all pretty new so we'll have more info posted doen the line.
