Eggs Over Easyrider

aka George Foreman Car Bonnet Grill

I'm in Cargo Cult land again, where it's hot enough to fry an egg on the bonnet of your car. This would be a practical possibility if you went to the small amount of trouble required to equip your car with the Eggs Over Easyrider modified bonnet.

You just check your car in to any of the approved outlets and when you get it back a discrete area of the existing bonnet will have been replaced by a patch of teflon, sloping gently down to a barely visible slot, running along the bottom edge of the teflon.

Now when you rest up after a long day's driving in the baking sun of Cargo Cult land, you can simply crack open a couple of eggs and enjoy a low-fat fry- up at the side of the road.

The unwanted grease runs down the bonnet, and drips though the slot into a collection tray that hangs underneath. I'm sure George Foreman would approve.

       I'm wondering, since the concept of cooking on the hood, bonnet or manifold of one's car isn't particularly new, is there any alternative benefit in painting all or any part of one's car in a Teflon-style product. Might it, perhaps, be stealthier to radar? Would it decrease wind resistance in operation and appreciably increase fuel efficiency? Would it be the "Never-Polish-Again" miracle finish of the 'Noughties? Or would it be just another faux air intake and racing stripe on the Duke's "General Lee"?   

       Remind me to ask George.

       Thought it might be a bit redundant, but what a title, even if I say so myself.
