Recently, I talked with Green Valley resident Bob Ethen about some memorable experiences he had driving the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile in the 80s and a current Wienermobile hotdogger coming to the 5th Annual Quail Creek Car Show on Sunday, April 3, at Quail Creek Madera Clubhouse.

Here is a history of the changes to the Wienermobile over the years since the first model was created by Oscar Mayer's nephew Carl Mayer, in 1936.

If you are interested in learning about all the bells and weenie whistles the current fleet of six Wienermobiles has that make up to 1400 stops in a year, watch this video.

Do you have a fond memory involving the Wienermobile? We would love to hear about it.
