Photo Friday: Oscar Mayer Wienermobile

Until a few weeks ago, when Dominique of Midwest Guest posted about the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, I thought that hot dog cars only existed in Richard Scarry picture books. Imagine my surprise when I saw one rolling down a busy Chicago street during BlogHer.

    I have almost that exact same picture! I know that some people got to go for rides in it. I think the license plate might say "Buns".

    Childhood memories. We have one here at the Henry Ford Museum permanently so we get the hot dog hungrys often.

    Great! Now I'm going to have the Oscar Meyer song in my head all weekend! ;-)

    Before I had kids I used to consider these types of vehicles the height of tackiness - come to think of it, I still do, but now they have me bouncing in my seat yelling 'look guys, how cool is that?' in an attempt to amuse my kids and distract them from whatever mischief they're (invariably) getting up to in the back seat. In fact my kids are bugging each other right now, think I'll call them to come have a look at this pic!

    I saw it in the distance two and was suddenly a kid again. Glad you got a picture!

    That is one wacky car. I seem to be seeing more photos of the mobile lately. I wonder if they have some kind of promotional thing going on?

    I saw it parked outside the Sheridan at one point. Wonder what it's like to drive, you would have to remember that it's a long vehicle.

    Hey, you need to check this out: - I think it's the folks who were driving the Wienermobile!

    Great contribution to the theme!

  11. Caitlin on August 14, 2009 at 3:42 p.m.

    That's hilarious!

    Gosh, I remember the Wienermobile from when I was a kid 50+ years ago...I even met Little Oscar!

  13. Wanderluster on August 16, 2009 at 7:15 a.m.

    I've never seen such a crazy thing. (Can you imagine that driving around Seattle? I can't.)

  14. Debbie on August 16, 2009 at 3:08 p.m.

    @wanderluster it would be pretty funny to see the wienermobile driving around on our steep hills!

    @Cate - check out this pic of the Wienermobile in an accident (not long before BlogHer - they must have more than one)
