California Street Vans : Vintage and Custom Van Club.




Based in Southern California, California Street Vans is a van club that celebrates vintage and custom vans, and the "heyday of vanning" , the 1970's. 

Murals and graphics, flares, Cragars, full on custom interiors with beds, tv's and iceboxes, CB's and 8 Track players....the whole deal.

If you have a cool vintage van, an old beater, survivor van, or a cool custom you built yourself, contact us at

We put on a van cruise known as the So-Cal Slow Ride, where we get together and caravan through some really great spots in Southern California.

We put on the Randy and Dave Memorial run every spring.

We put on BYOB every October!

We put on The Big Ass Cook Out in Spring-ish. 

We co-produce the Stampede Van Run along with our good buddies the Van Freaks!
