Hot Wheels, Treats for Creeps, 1983, Most Disturbing Van!


Today's water cooler antics at work dealt with this little van from 1983. A co-worker found it in his old toy stash. It's hard to believe Hot Wheels went there even if it was 1983. Yes, an Ice Cream truck with a most disturbing clown graphic with "Treats for Creeps" as its header sign. At least it wasn't "Treats from Creeps." "I scream 2," is also on the side. The toy is in awesome shape for a 1983 Hot Wheels. Anyone else remember playing with this one?

So, is Ed Gein an extra, or does he come with the car?

Although this vehicle was originally cast in '83 (with a much more benign ice cream truck motif) this version was only recently released (2003) - hence it's condition. http://www.southtexasdiecast.com/hwguide/images/2003/2003_099.jpg

Schooled again by Bubbashelby!, now I need to make a retraction, and go down ten steps in the Toy Blog ranks!
