The 2012 Vanfest coverage is in the latest Mini Truckin Magazine, only a glimpse of vans in the background but this is the first national publication to run coverage of Vanfest. Huge thanks to Jessica and all the mini truckers who put this great coverage together. That whole adventure to get the coverage ended up with Jessica marrying John Mata, the editor of Mini Truckin during the 2012 SEMA week. We'll have John up here for Vanfest 2013. If we don't get the vans from Vanfest 2012 covered in a magazine we'll see if John can help us get them into Truckin' in 2013. He works down the hall from the Truckin' people. Getting back to California, the wheels are in motion to do another calendar for 2014. it would be the 10th and final edition of the Showvans calendar. Should there be a 2014 CofC in California the funds will once again be used to finance the van show. If that doesn't happen I'm looking into co-producing a show in the late spring/early fall of 2014 down there. One of the hottest car culture artists on the planet has already offered to do the poster for it. This time we would have the top van related artists in California displaying their wares at the show and I'll try to convince my friends at Wheels of Confusion to do a Slow Ride that weekend to coincide with the show.
