That thing would make a good promotional vehicle for Gateway Computers!

Pretty ugly, but cute in a strange kinda way I guess. [:0]

Last june while I was in Anchorage as I came up to an interchange I saw a zip van that was made into an ice cream truck. It was turning as I got to the intersection and couldn't get my camera out quick enough to get a photo. It was a working truck. I was amazed.

Looks like a wreck between a bullet nose convertible and Neese's Sausage truck (you Southeastern guys will know what I mean....).

hmm, get ready.


Making it your daily driver would be really "milking it" for all it's worth.

I have to wonder the same thing. The box isn't refrigerated or even insulated. I Florida his ice cream wouldn't last long.

Nicely done and a lot of work but ya, why wouldn't you make it a working refrigerated box? At least if its not going to be a working truck, go all the way and put a big hot rodded motor in it. Maybe something that sticks through the hood! Give it some purpose

This vehicle has been around for a while. It is an attention grabber, but how long until the novelty wears off. A local guy has a model A popcorn truck with a big hot rod engine. The truck is unique, but unless you really want to make pop corn for lots of people what is it good for?

The quality looks first rate. But I think someone just had an old U-haul trailer sitting around..."hey, what if we...". Agreed. Doesn't really serve a purpose.

Of all the things which can and should be done with a bullet nose, that is a cryin' shame. His car, his money; my opinion - waste of a great potential.

Hey, pop a cooler, grill and a widescreen TV in the back of that and have an awesome tailgating machine.

Clunk - it's a "COOL" machine. Consequently the doors are froze shut!

Really - a little Honda generator hidden somewheres (or even just cooler chests with dry ice to keep the frozen "novelties" solid)- I'll bet oldsters would be lined up to buy (and maybe have their photo snapped while doing so) from this thing.

Let's face it - when your vehicles subliminally (SP bams?) suggest Stew and Bakers - there's gotta be some sorta food tie-in![:p]

Cringed at first and somewhat agree with Barnlark but,
I must say it is very nicely done and cool looking.

In this area, there is a Model T popcorn truck and an old Ford based Good Humor truck. They take them to car shows, cruise-ins, flea markets and special events. I last saw the Good Humor truck dispensing ice cream at a hospital event. These people have fun with the vehicles and make money at the same time.

It's crooked. The tailgating idea is the best--with your plasma mounted in the bulkhead, and bowls of hotwings and some iced down coors light.

IIRC, the Good Humor trucks I saw as a kid were solid on the driver's side, and were open on the right. I guess the idea was to keep the driver from stepping into traffic. As in the car under discussion, there was no roof over the driver.

The bells would drive me nuts in about 2 blocks.
