An in-dash oven for warming food

Pull up to the gas station pump, insert your credit card, and select a soup, sandwhich and coffee from the vending machine next to the pump.

Throw your food into a small door in the dash. This chamber draws heat from your 200+ degree engine to warm up the food. A temperature guage lets you know when the food is ready. Open the door and chow down!

       Seems good to me, in theory at least. There'd be problems with the driver having to see to the food while talking on the phone, doing their hair and overtaking a truck; if this possibility could be excluded then the world would be a safer place.   

       This isn't the first time I've seen the phrase "chow down". It's definitely US-only; does anybody know its origin? It doesn't seem to bear any resemblance to any similar phrase. You wouldn't say "eat down" or "munch down"; anyone shed some light on how it has arisen?

       One can keep food very hot by just placing atop the defrost vents. I know, I've done it. Steamed up the windshield a bit but worked so well I was quite amazed.

       Etymology: "Possibly from Chinese (Cantonese) gou (dog.)" -- The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition   

       So, conclusively, Chinese restaurants do in fact serve dog. Who's up for some 'chow'?
