Envision this: You're eight years old, outside riding your bike around your neighborhood with a couple of friends. You have a couple scrapes on your knees and on the palms of your hands, but it's summer and you couldn't have any fewer cares in the world. All of a sudden, you hear that unmistakable jingle getting louder and louder.... The ice cream truck!

You race back home and run inside, begging your parents for a couple dollars, and by the time you make it back outside, cash in hand, you're just in the nick of time to flag down the man driving the truck. But now it's time to make the most difficult decision of the afternoon: which ice cream to choose. Bomb pops, character popsicles, the always-classic Drumstick. There was no going wrong with the goodies from the ice cream truck.

It's probably been a while since you've had one of these delectable childhood treats, but what if you were to carry on this age-old tradition of summer fun? A man in Hanover is selling an ice cream truck, completely outfitted with a fridge any everything, so if you're looking for a sign to start that side gig as an ice cream vendor, this is it.

Safwat Odat is selling the white 2001 Dodge Ram van for $4,500, and said that aside from needing a new battery, it's a "good truck."
