CAR RECORD PLAYER
Chrysler introduced a vinyl playing device into certain models during the 1950’s. To prevent the record jumping every time you hit a bump or turned a corner, the stylus was weighted and the turntable span at a slower rate.

FAST FOOD SWIVEL TRAY
This handy holder fits elegantly into your vehicle’s cup holder (or doesn’t if the reviews are to be believed) and can easily accommodate a hamburger, drink and fries (except it can’t, again, if you read the reviews).

Programme advertising logos, short messages and pictures of bunnies to appear on your wheels courtesy of computer software which could surely be put to better use.

HELLO KITTY EXHAUST
Of course, you can get Hello Kitty everything, but why you’d like the cute Japanese cat to appear at the end of your tailpipe is beyond me.
FAKE BASEBALL SHATTERED WINDOW
Lower the resale value of your car, and the everyone else’s opinion of you, instantly with this hilarious novelty that makes it seems as if an errant baseball has smashed your windscreen.
