Back in the day, they loved their unmitigated dangerousness. Don't want exciteable little Muffy getting all nutso and chewing the seat foam? Stick him in his very own doggy bag and make his stinky little backside ride on the running board. Cut one of those shrinking yellow lights too close, and you'll let all the jelly filling out of your canine friend with this rig, but the dog would probably love this style of travel. The only modern car you could attempt this stunt with would be a New Beetle, though there's plenty of trucks with running boards. What's a better combo than a man and his truck, with his dog in a bag outside?

      Why does this remind me of a colostomy bag?

      Nevermind.

      "Hole for head" has got to be the greatest marketing catch phrase ever! Beats the competition because they don't have any holes for the head! Maybe we'll get them in the year 2000!

        Anyone who has traveled with a lab would see the genius of this idea.

      Proof they sold crack in those days!!!!

      There was another option for larger bag that included a muzzle, for the mother-in-law... ahhhh, the good ole days before DOT regulations... back when she was the side-impact "air bag"

      I hope the owner uses caution when he opens/closes his door!

      It has to be remembered that in 1936 there were virtually no treatments for fleas on pets; so would you really want to ride in a smallish, closed car with "Rover" and all his flying friends?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Technically no one cares about technicalities.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Well, technically fleas don't fly. They can jump really far, though.

      Its probably safer for the dog than seeing some genus driving around with the dog on their lap between them and the airbag.

      Gee, what going to happen to Fido when you get in a fender bender and the airbag goes off? Morons.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Fido is the airbag.

      The HHR has running boards. How `bout it GM for an accessory?

      Isn't this what Mitt Romney used to do when the family went on vacation?
        • 6 Years Ago
        No, that was up on the car's roof. And they didn't have rear wipers back then.

        If he'd of used one of these he'd still be in the race...or not.

        Yes. That's where his unwed, pregnant teen daughter had to ride.

      wow. within hours of this showing up on 4chan, there was a digg link to a flickr copy of it and then autoblog copies it.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Its a great idea. One should try it. ;-)
      • 6 Years Ago
      ...wow.

      Yet another awesome idea from the generation that brought us Spam.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Spam is great. Greatly underrated in my opinion.
