Can a creature you've just played crew a vehicle?

Yes. Note the rules text for crew:

Quoting CompRules:702.121a Crew is an activated ability of Vehicle cards. “Crew N” means “Tap any number of untapped creatures you control with total power N or greater: This permanent becomes an artifact creature until end of turn.”

Additionally:

Quoting CompRules:302.6. A creature’s activated ability with the tap symbol or the untap symbol in its activation cost can’t be activated unless the creature has been under its controller’s control continuously since his or her most recent turn began. A creature can’t attack unless it has been under its controller’s control continuously since his or her most recent turn began. This rule is informally called the “summoning sickness” rule.

Crew is not an activated ability of the creatures you're tapping, nor does it have the tap symbol in the cost, so you can tap any creature you control for it, including those you've just cast.
