 :|           That's not the car I thought it would be. Somewhere squirreled way I have a Walthers covered hopper in white with the polka dots on it like on Wonder Bread loaves which I believe was a scheme they actually used for awhile. Nate Goodman (Nato). Salt Lake, Utah.

I too have some Hostess and Wonder Bread polka-dotted models. There were several made. IIRC, some were Walthers, some special-run (BevBel maybe?).
