Wieners through the ages…

From the original 1938 General Body Company custom-chassis:

… to the 2008 Mini-Cooper-based model:

… from Oobject, “All 10 Wienermobiles Through History.”

As we wish that we were an Oscar Meyer wiener, we might recall that it was on this date in 2003 that the last of 21,529,464 Volkswagen Beetles built since World War II rolled off the production line at Volkswagen’s plant in Puebla, Mexico.  The baby-blue bug rests in a museum in Wolfsburg, Germany, Volkswagen’s headquarters city.  (The classic Beetle is not to be confused with the [Golf-based] reincarnation introduced in 1998…)
