Now you see in the UK Ice Cream van variants fetch huge money, I recall a couple of Commer/Karrier BF Ice Cream vans sell for like 4 times the price of the standard offering.

I remember last year when we were at Glastonbury Festival seeing quite a few of the food stalls (ice cream / alcohol / pizzas) being basd on classic / vintage vans. A lovely Morris LC, a Bedford K type, a PA Commer and a couple of split screen VW's.

I was chatting to someone recently, he was saying that lots of organisers only allow foody traders to sell at their events, if they have period vehicles such as H vans and Commers etc. to sell from.
