Wienermobiles: Cruising Around For 71 Years


Today's random piece of trivia comes to us from cold cut company, Oscar Mayer. I have never personally seen the - what can only be described as awesome - Wienermobile, but today it turns 71. Invented in 1936 by Oscar Meyer's nephew Carl, the Wienermobile is an automobile shaped like a hot dog and bun. Used as promotional stunts, the fleet of six wienermobiles are road legal (all registered in Wisconsin) and tour the country handing out Wienerwhistles (toy whistles shaped like the Wienermobile). They also sport vanity plates such as YUMMY, OUR DOG, BIG BUN and BOLOGNA.

Have you ever seen the Wienermobile?
