California Roller
California Van

  • Original year: 1979
  • Company: Revell

This high-rollin' van is ridin' the newest wave of fun-direct from Venice California-rollerskating! Sneak a peek at those twin huskies, fender flares, custom scoops, mags and Goodyear radial doughnuts. Just add a smooth surface, sunshine, plenty of slide and you're ready for a wheel thrill. So grab your skates, Mate. Tie them on, and let the good times roll.

Dave's comments:

The California Roller is one of many VW vans used by designers as show rods. This is promoting roller-skating in the late '70s. Who would have known that it would soon give way to "rollerblading" in the '80s? Lots of decals on this one make it kinda interesting.
