Hot dog! All of the July 18 Great Lakes Gazette Where? Wednesday entrants correctly identified the location of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile: it’s displayed among the Americana at Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn.
Oscar’s nephew Carl G. Mayer created the first tube steak-shaped promotional vehicle in 1936. The productmobile displayed at The Henry Ford dates to 1952, and is a popular photo op with visitors.
It’s displayed near the museum’s Wienermobile Cafe, where hot dogs are served a dozen ways. In the museum gift shop you can stock up on Wienermobile souvenirs, like a tiny whistle or a hand blown ornament in the iconic shape.
Where? Wednesday winner Sarah Richardson of Cape Coral, Florida, gets the prize: a handy Kozak Auto DryWash, the cloth that requires no water for cleaning your car.
Thanks to all who follow Great Lakes Gazette and play along with Where? Wednesday.
