The weirdest hidden features you’ve NEVER heard of
Buying a new car usually means choosing your preferred engine and gearbox combo, paint colour and trim level. That’s about it – maybe throw in a couple of nice extras for comfort.
But over the years, some manufacturers have taken it beyond just heated steering wheels in order to tempt us… As far as in-car showers.
I just happened across this article outlining some of the most outlandish things you ever did see inside a car – it’s an oldie, but most definitely a goodie!
My personal favourites include Honda’s CR-V shower.
Imagine the sales pitch on this one, “Do you work outside all day, roll around in mud, have dogs and enjoy wild camping? – then we’ve got the car for you!”
The shower attachment even came with a little tub to stand in. And why not? - The last thing you want when scrubbing yourself down in a field is muddy toes…
The Chrysler Highway Hi-Fi is a good one too…
Even though cars came with standard AM radios back in the 1950s, dodgy antennas and limited radio shows meant music wasn’t always guaranteed. So Chrysler installed a record player!
Funnily enough it wasn’t really a hit.
What extras would you go for to make your life easier, real or completely made-up?
