Wienermobile Birthday Bash!

July 18, 2009

From the cheesy side of innovation town comes this story. On KLOO FM this morning, I heard that this was the anniversary of the first Wienermobile – so I went online to find out more…

An Oscar Meyer Wienermobile crashed into the home and outdoor deck of Nick Krupp in Racine, Wis. on Friday morning, July 17, 2009. According to a witness, the vehicle was parked in the driveway. The driver lurched the vehicle forward instead of backing out of the driveway, hitting Krupps deck and cracking the foundation of his house. (AP Photo/Journal Times, Tom McCauley)

Who makes these kinds of vehicles? A company in Santa Barbara, CA called Prototype Source does.

An opportunity to work on the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile turned into such a fun project, we were inspired to expand our services to include design and fabrication of vehicles for product promotion and corporate identity.  In time, we became the go-to guys for productmobiles, and have created such crowd-pleasers as the Hershey’s Kissmobile, Planters Nutmobile, Kellogg’s Tonymobile, and the Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, to name a few.

A Mr. Peanut Limo – I like it a lot!
