Hi,
  I vaguely remember a story about a guy who owns a van with a fancy bed in the back he meets this brunette only problem is she somehow involved with these tough gang guys I think called the black widows or something like that.  I seem to remember a shiny red jacket with the black widow symbol.  Also I remember a group of guys cruising around in a van playing Led Zeppelin IV.  Please help this has been driving me crazy!
Ciao,
Jim

Possibly the VAN (1977).

Hi Thanks for the response but it is not the "Van" or "super van"  I do not recall "van" being in the title.
Regards,

The gang may have been called the "widow makers" or something like that. Smile

Is it "Every Which Way But Loose"?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077523/

Or it's sequel, "Any Which Way You Can".

Not those but thank you for the suggestion.  This was a second feature when the disaster movies were in vogue like Airport 77 or Earthquake.

I think this might be "Drive-in". It was sorta an American Graffiti with a Southern attitude. One guy had a van with a water bed in the back. If you look at the IMDb comment by aimless-46, he mentions one of the gangs in the movie is named The Widow Makers.

At one point in the movie, the water bed gets punctured and a huge amount of water comes cascading out of the back of the van.

You're very welcome. Having a mind that retains this kind of odd info, it's always a pleasure to get to use it.
