Oscar Mayer Wienermobile

Kraft Heinz, the new Germanic overlords of Oscar Mayer, announced on Nov. 4 that in early 2016 it would close Oscar Mayer's Madison plant and move its headquarters to Chicago. The Wienermobile will almost certainly go somewhere else, too, so if you want to see it in Madison, do it soon.

The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is an American icon that brings an instant smile to anyone's face.

I believe this is a "retired" Wienermobile. It has special landscaping and a little plaque in front of it, and has been at this site in the same spot for at least two years.

A fleet of wienermobiles is spread around the nation for speedy event and county fair deployment. They've upgraded the customized vehicle several times.
