Frankly, what is a wienermobile?
It's 27 feet long or 60 hot dogs. It's 8 feet wide or 18 hot dogs. And it's 11 feet tall or 24 hot dogs.
It has a hot dog shaped dashboard, seating for six in ketchup and mustard colored seats, an exterior back-up camera, a flat-screen TV, gull-wing door with an automatic retractable step, a condiment-splattered carpet, removable bunroof, a blue sky ceiling art, official Wiener Jingle horn, and a smiling front grill.
It cruises an average of 500 miles per week.
The first Wienermobile was built in 1936 and it has storage space for 11,000 Wiener Whistles.
