Cruising Van Nuys

In the summer of 1972, 26-year-old San Fernando valley native Rick McCloskey was photographing life on SoCal’s Van Nuys Boulevard, looking on as the bright young things cruised in cars and hung out. “Every town in America had a strip where kids would take their cars and go hang out whether it was only a block long – big towns, little towns, cities. It was really a thing for everybody to be involved at some point,” says Rick.

“You had everything from your Mustangs to lowriders and hot rods. Essentially you were out there to see your friends, show off your car, and just sort of be there. It was the place for young people to be.” – Rick McCloskey. You can see more of Rick’s killer photos and get his book through his website here >
