Foghat on the eight-track, window down, Fu Manchu mustache rustling in the wind, a bottle of Southern Comfort in your shiftin' hand and a pair of babes on the faux polar-bear rug in the back—the van life was a good one back in the ’70s. Doc Wasabassco and his gang salute that halcyon scene, with Evelyn Vinyl, Gal Friday, Hazel Honeysuckle, Mala Morrigan, Medianoche, Nasty Canasta, Poison Ivory, Sapphire Jones, Stormy Leather and Sydni Deveraux revving up your engine. Remember: If the van's a-rockin', don't come a-knockin'.
