colors, the stark white interior and the omission of the flat black paint found on the grille of the HK version. No casting variations noted. The hood and motor pieces of
the Sugar Caddy are quite fragile and are often missing.

The first Sugar Caddy surfaced on eBay in January of 2006. Over the years, only a very few more have been found and only two complete ones. The Sugar Caddy
had been found only in red until 2012. In 2011, a track set which included a mint condition red Sugar Caddy, in baggie, was offered on eBay by a Mexican
seller. Unfortunately, the seller attempted opened the baggie and then attempted to open the hood for photos and the hood snapped into pieces. In 2012, at
the Hot Wheels Convention, an attendee from Mexico displayed SugarCaddy in the typical CIPSA mustard yellow enamel that he acquired as part of a group
from the family of a former CIPSA employee.
