Car Talk is at the SEMA show this week. SEMA claims to draw "the industry’s brightest minds and hottest products to one place," but we thought we'd let you be the judge of that.
Tell us what you think of these products, spotted on the show floor.
First up, Flat-Jack. Designed for car collectors, Flat-jack gives tires a cushion of air to prevent flat spots in long-term storage. $420-$600.
This little number is called Between the Seats, and is designed to catch all those French fries and bon bons you've been dropping for years. $10 for two.
Heated windshield wipers won't spare you from scraping, but could at least keep ice buildup off themselves. Does that make them worth $150 a pair to you? From Thermalblade.
Just add water, go away for 24 hours, and Auto Shocker is guaranteed to make even the stinkiest interior habitable again. After one more day of SEMA, I may need to strap one to my head. $24.95.
Here's one that we, and pretty much everybody at SEMA, wish we'd thought of ourselves. Hozeez is so clever, it almost makes us feel like washing the car. Almost. $19.95 a pair.
It could be argued that without twist ties, life itself would be impossible. Gear Tie is a reusable one, two for around five bucks.
Who doesn't need a pink and camo ice scraper mitt?
Finally, Tireless, a way to fill in those boring grooves in your tires with a splash of color. $20, and at least it's easy to stay within the lines for the coloring book challenged.
