PHOTOS: Weinermobile in Houston

<div class="meta image-caption"><div class="origin-logo origin-image none"><span>none</span></div><span class="caption-text">Cruising around Houston is the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile, with Guadalupe Martinez &#40;aka Guac&#39;alupe&#41; and Chris Kitts &#40;aka C. Melton Cheddar&#41; at the wheel of the 27-foot long hot dog shaped vehicle of fun.  If you spot the Weinermobile, you might get a chance to take a photo with the American icon, score a free Weinerwhistle and maybe even grab some grub.  One of America&#39;s most popular attractions, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was first created in 1936 to promote Oscar Mayer&#39;s products at grocery stores across the Midwest. As the company grew, it continued its record run, traveling from coast to coast until 1970. Then, in 1986, on the 50th anniversary of its first run, the Wienermobile went on tour again, and it&#39;s been on a roll ever since!</span></div>
