Swingin’ 70’s aluminum sign from the burgeoning van culture that proliferated in that decade as folks realized they could have living rooms and love lairs on wheels. Zebra coital caves, Disco dens and the like popped up like weeds on the highway and a new automotive accessories market was born that included heart shaped bubble windows, car bars, massive sound systems and waterbeds. Movies like 1977’s Supervan and The Van, featuring the song “Chevy Van”, popularized the free-lovin’-with-matching-vehicles lifestyle.
