I was reading a post a few minutes ago about The Tornado Fuel Saver. It got me thinking about some of the dumb or rip off ideas from days past.
Here's one I remember;
It was either in the late 70's or early 80's, there was this great new product to help you if you needed to change a flat tire. It was some sort of foldable bag with a hose attached to it. You place the bag under your car, connect the hose to the exhaust pipe, start your engine and the exhaust pressure from your engine would raise the car. Anyone remember it?? Oh, I forgot to mention, it stored neatly in your trunk or behind your truck seat LOL! I bet there were numerous lawsuits....
Please feel free to add more dumb or rip off products to the list
