Weinermobile Visiting Concerts on the Square

On July 3rd the Weinermobile was on display across the street from the State Capitol Building in Madison, Wisconsin. Ah, a photo op and why not? The car is a Wisconsin icon, and an American icon, too.

This particular Weinermobile bears the license moniker YUMMY. Very smart, these hot dog people – putting the plate inside the car. There have been reports of missing plates on some of the vehicles. Other licenses the cars have include BIG BUN, OH I WISH, WEENR, WEINER, and OUR DOG, all Wisconsin plates.

Really smart interior. Not only is everything catsup red and mustard yellow, but the ceiling is a lovely cloudscape. Very uplifting, especially during those winter months when the skies tend towards gray and cloudy.

  2. Really like the ceiling in the Wienermobile. Americana!!! Can it drive in the snow? 🙂 🙂 🙂

  3. I love the Wienermobile. I once had the little Hot Wheels version. Alas, the grand vehicle never came to my town, I was never able to lavish my attentions upon it.

    Thank you for this!

    I just finished eat a few hot dogs, but I’m pretty sure they were from someone else. I didn’t make them, which is why I don’t know.

    Makes me hungry. I had a salad for lunch. An Oscar Mayer weiner sounds much tastier. Alas i came to this post too late today. 🙂
