Car candle

No more terrible smells in your car

Ok now i know the point of those rear-view-mirror-trees is to keep your car smelling good but when somthing gross has been spilled on the road in an accident or you drive by the local compost or fertilizer mountain, the trees just dont cut it. Solution: keep a candle in a little niche built into the dashboard with a sort of shell on three sides. Upon flicking a switch on your button panel thingy, a built-in cigarette lighter type device ignites one of those extremely strong scented candles - like the cinnamon kind. Of course its cubby-hole would be accessible so you could clean out the wax and replace the candle. Just keep the back window down a little bit so you dont suffocate but don't blow out the candle goin 50 down the highway either.

       you really need a flame to light a candle, methinks. how about a giant incense stick mounted on the bonnet? (hood?)

       I just push the Air Recirc. toggle button until the smell source (tannery, silage, SUV exhaust) is past.

       Not sure about that one [po]. Unless it was meant to also be an aerial replacement. Or involves custard in some way.

       no custard was eaten before, during or indeed after that last anno.

       So can a cat, apparently. But it needs to be changed every 5000 miles.
