Rockin' Vanners

This is by no means comprehensive... it’s ever-growing and is just a list of some things DON’T COME KNOCKIN’ finds cool:




All Nite Vans
A site that wholeheartedly supports vanning in all of it’s twisted beauty. Be sure to take a look at the Dictionary and "Turd Polishing Page".

Tons of Vanarchy

Facebook group for vanners (you have to ask to join) run by Canandian vanner Belinda.


Coming to you from the wild west coast of Ireland. V8Van specializes in the sourcing, importation and delivery of good condition American vans (with a preference for full-size, customised, Cconverted, low top camper vans with V8 engines dating 1970-80’s). You can tell it’s from the heart here as this site has vanner eye-candy galore and quite a collection of images. Killer stuff. One of my favs is the hard luck photo section.

The Kozy Kar Bar
A bar in San Francisco that is ALL about vans. And we mean ALL about ’em! And now there’s one in Santa Rosa too.


San Francisco Magazine Spread on Bay Area Women Vanners
When San Francisco Magazine contacted me because they wanted to do a story on bay area women vanners, I was wondering who they’d be interviewing. Guess who? A couple of the three contacts I PROVIDED THEM! When the journalist asked to me send “five or six bay area women vanners” she could include in her piece, I laughed and said, “I know of three.” I don't think it’s what she had in mind. My favorite thing about being in this awesome spread is that the mag online is “modern luxury dot com.” Who knew that I would be interviewed someday for a MODERN LUXURY magazine!?  HA! Also included are Sweet Cicely and Mercy Cat, both of whom I have interviewed for DON’T COME KNOCKIN’. Bummed my friend Piper declined to be interviewed because she is real bad ass and her van is super cool.

Wall Street Journal Article
