The Wienermobile is a Hot dog-shaped car made by the hot dog company Oscar Mayer. It was made in 1936 by Carl G. Mayer (Oscar Mayer’s Nephew). The Car is shaped like a hot dog and a bun on the bottom. There have been 6 Wienermobiles over time. A Wienermobile costs around $60,000. 4 people can fit in a Wienermobile at once. Wienermobiles can go up to 110 miles per hour.¬† The first Wienermobile ever made is now displayed in the Henry Ford Museum. When the Oscar Mayer company had its 125th anniversary they made a mini Wienermobile it is called the LTL LINK, It is built from a BMW MINI Cooper.

A driver for a Wienermobile is called a Hotdogger. Hotdoggers can make up to $105,000 per year. You can also rent a Wienermobile hotel for $136 a night. When you rent or visit a Wienermobile you get introduced to the hot dogger and take a tour of it.

Most people think that the Wienermobile gives out hotdogs, but unfortunately, they do not.

Oscar Mayer also has a special whistle they blow on the Wienermobile, it is called the weenie whistle.

There were 4 cities chosen, The cities chosen were based on the cities rideshare population. The cities were New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. But the opportunity has unfortunately ended.
