Halloween Haunt 1976 part 1

Today, I'm posting some photos from a publicity stunt to promote the 1976 Halloween Haunt. The first four photos are of four monks escorting a mystery vehicle to the Grand Entrance at Knott's. The parking lot in the background is now Camp Snoopy. Also, note that they are traveling on the Cable Car tracks and pass by a Cable Car Stop, it was only 25 cents to ride the Cable Cars. In the third picture there is one of the Cable Cars waiting for the mystery vehicle and procession to pass by.

Now, the next couple of photos are of Virginia (left) and Marion Knott unveiling the mystery vehicle, it's a hearse.

Here's Virginia and Marion posing with the monks, the four escorts and the driver.

And now the monks are taking something out of the hearse, it looks to be a coffin.

And look who's in the coffin, it's Wolfman Jack.

More to come tomorrow.


  1. These are great! Never seen 'em before. Thanks, Allen.

  2. Oh my gosh, I would commit serious crimes to own that vehicle!
