Long Description:
(visit link)

Instead of containing pure pork shoulder and ham, however, each of the three cans is actually a vehicle used to prepare sample sizes of SPAMBURGER® hamburgers. The large replicas of a SPAM® can are crossing the United States to enable people to become more familiar with the great taste of SPAM® classic and SPAM® oven roasted turkey.

The first SPAMMOBILE(TM) vehicle, shaped from a trolley car chassis, was unveiled in March 2001. Since then, it has been appearing at retail stores during weekdays and concerts, festivals, sporting events and other venues on weekends.

A second SPAMMOBILE(TM) vehicle rolled out in mid-April 2002 and the third unit went into service at the end of that month.
Each SPAMMOBILE(TM) vehicle is designed to resemble a blue and yellow can of SPAM®. The sides of the vehicle portray the front of a can of SPAM® and the front of the unit displays two eyes and a smile to give the vehicle a friendly demeanor.

Each vehicle is approximately 28 feet long, eight feet wide and 10 feet high. Inside, electric sandwich grills are used to prepare miniature SPAMBURGER® hamburgers.

Approximately 500,000 SPAMBURGER® hamburgers will be served during the year by each SPAMMOBILE(TM), or about 1.5 million sandwiches for all three vehicles. The three vehicles will travel a combined total of about 120,000 miles, operating year-round to attend nearly 675 events each year. Each vehicle is supported by a field manager/driver and a crew of trained SPAM(TM)bassadors.

Information about scheduled appearances of the SPAMMOBILE(TM) vehicles, which is listed by region, photographs of the units and additional details about the vehicles can be found on the Web at www.spammobile.com.
