Weird Car Accessories People Actually Use

There was a time when people thought hanging dice and the dashboard hula dancers were weird. But today, car enthusiasts have many more strange accessories to choose from. Strap in and get ready to discover the most peculiar car accessories that will have you wondering, “Why didn’t I think of that?” We are not advocating for any of these products, we just found them unique – and interesting!

Wild Willy Fuel Fragrance

Wild Willy
Wild Willy offers a fuel fragrance you can pour directly into your fuel to hide fuel odors. It can be used in 2 and 4 stroke fuels as well as most gasolines. It is safe to use in most engine types as well. From Apple Pie to Fireball, adding just a bit of this clear fragrance to your fuel will have you giving off exhaust fumes that will make people hungry for more.

The Bumper Dumper

It happens to the best of us. We are traveling on the wide open roads when, gasp, there is not a restroom in sight—just tumbleweeds and land as far as the eye can see. That is why someone created a portable car tire toilet called the Bumper Dumper. This innovative creation lets you mount a hitch to your car or truck, allowing you to use a toilet seat and bucket wherever you go.

Hot Licks Exhaust
If making your car exhaust smell better with Wild Willy is not enough, you can up the game with flames. Hot Licks Exhaust sells exhaust kits that turn your vehicle into a flamethrower. Depending on the engine size, you can expect a 12-24 inch afterburner flame. But there are options to make them even bigger.

Rear Car Laser

We see the value of this product but have never actually seen one in use on the road. The rear car laser is meant to be a safety feature. Install it on the back of your car, and during rain or tough visibility situations you can engage the light. This laser will help improve the ability of people behind you to see you. Some lights are plain lasers, others have more creative looks with designs and patterns.
