Answer to Carmageddon? The Wienermobile

On Sunday, Wienerschnitzel will offer retro prices and a chance to win a trip to Germany as part of its 50th anniversary celebration.

If you dare travel the L.A. freeways this weekend, you should know that , the world’s largest hot dog chain, will celebrate 50 years in business Sunday by rolling back the price of its chili dogs, mustard dogs and kraut dogs to the 1961 price tag of 60 cents.

The promotion will be available at all Wienerschnitzel locations, including .

The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile has been seen traveling around the Los Angeles area to promote the event.

At Wienerschnitzel, guests can also enter for a chance to win a trip for two to Germany. The trip includes roundtrip airfare to Munich, seven days/six nights of hotel accommodations and $1,000 spending cash. Entry forms will be available in stores on Sunday only.

In addition to marking the company's 50th year, the promotion was launched to "have some fun with our loyal fans,” said Tom Amberger, vice president of marketing for Wienerschnitzel, in a press release. "The trip to Germany is just a little fun we’re having with our name,” he added in the release.

Restaurants will be decked out with “Der fun since ‘61” decorations, according to the release.

I haven't seen the Wienermobile lately, but I do still have my vintage Oscar Meyer Wiener Whistle from when I was a kid! I think it is now officially considered an antique!

If the price of a hot dog had been 60 cents in 1961 (and, by the way, their advertising those for 61 cents), no one would have bought any! (Think about McDonalds pricing in the 1960's!) When we were 16, around 1969-70, the hot dogs mentioned in the article cost 18 cents...22 cents for a chili-cheese dog...at the Weinerschnitzel which was on Huntington Dr. in Monrovia. We were there at LEAST once a week!
