The Good Humor Truck
Few vehicles in the history of American motoring conjure more warm feelings of nostalgia than the Good Humor ice cream truck. At its peak in the mid-1950s, a fleet of about 2,000 trucks zig-zagged through American suburbs—piloted by Good Humor drivers dressed in all white with black shoes and a coin changer strapped to their belt. The vendors summoned excited young customers with a bell announcing that the ice cream truck was approaching. Today, fewer than 100 Good Humor trucks are believed to have survived. A fine example—a 1966 Ford F-100 variant—is available on eBay Motors with a Buy-It-Now price of $65,000.
