11 New Rounds in the AutoAnything Glock


Arigato, otearai

On a side note, the phone fairy stopped by AutoAnything’s office last night and left us all Avaya treats. What I can’t get over, though, is how similar the ringer sounds to the jingle the toilets at Tokyo’s Narita Airport play after you’ve made an honorable deposit. Skeevey.

Oh yeah, we also added some new accessories to our digital shelves. Dig these:

Superwinch S3000 WinchWhen not winching crime, Superwinch dons the mild-mannered affect of a hack journalist.

Superwinch S4000 WinchThis Superwinch winch is stronger than the S3000, but also more sensitive to pictures of starving children…a winch that’s not afraid to cry.

Superwinch LP8500 WinchWith 8,500 lbs of line pull, the only thing this 8000 lb winch can’t do is replace your beloved manga body pillow, Kumiko.

Superwinch EP 9.0 WinchThis Superwinch winch boasts 9,000 lbs of line pull, perfect for recovering from a mud hole, but you’ll need a patient shrink to recover from the news that Nazareth isn’t including your city on their 2010 Love Still Hurts tour.

Superwinch EPi 9.0 WinchThe EP 9.0 winch has 100′ of wire rope. The EPi 9.0 has 125′. Do the math—you can go 25% more bananas on your next Jeep jamboree with these winches.

Superwinch EP 12.5 Winch—The perfect winch for rescuing your rig or pulling out the load-bearing supports on that granny flat your neighbor built too close to your property line. Damn you, McGillicuddy!

Superwinch EP 16.5 Winch—For perspective, this brawny winch has enough backbone to reel in almost 23 pairs of McGwire twins simultaneously.

Superwinch S5000 Winch—Compared to its bigger brethren, this winch may seem like a Webster among Reruns, but it kicks like Mister Ed.

Kurgo Combo PackageKurgo Dog On the Go survival kit contents check. In it you’ll find: one bright orange and black Quantum Leash, one Tru-Fit Smart Harness with padded chest plate, one nylon webbed Wander Collar…shoot, a fella’ could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff.

Kurgo Co-Pilot Dog Seat CoverDog may be your co-pilot, but it’s not going to stop her frothy lather of slobber from raining down all over your seat. These seat covers for dogs from Kurgo can help protect you from resenting your dog vs. cat decision.

Softride Ski Rack Attachment—It converts your Softride bike rack into a ski & snowboard rack when you want to convince your coworkers that you do more on the weekends than simply curl up fetal and weep.

Kurgo Skybox Dog Booster SeatFor the rich, a “skybox” is a metaphor for being out of touch with the working class. For your precious little pooch, a Kurgo skybox dog carrier is a metaphor for being out of touch with the fact he’s a dog.

Bike Racks, Cargo Bars, Pet Travel Gear & Electronic Organizers – An AutoAnything Weekly Update


Ziggy Stardust AKA David Bowie

Try as we may, we are powerless to resist the seductive force of Ziggy Stardust’s screwed-up eyes and screwed-down hairdo. Same goes for the 11 new products from Heininger Automotive that landed on our site last night:

  • CommuteMate CellCup – It’s the cellphone organizer that uses your cupholder.  Hopefully you have more than one cup holder, otherwise you gotta figure out what to do with your 128 oz. Double Gulp.
  • CommuteMate NavCup GPS Holder – It holds your GPS on your dash and sits as a constant reminder of your inability to just ask the guy at the gas station for directions to Dairy Queen.
  • Advantage BedRack Truck Bike Rack – It’s like the bike rack at your old elementary school, only mounted in your truck’s bed and not the locus of after school bullying.
  • Advantage GlideAway Bike Rack – It pulls back like the bellows of an accordion, giving you quick access to your cargo area and conjuring up hard-to-shake images of Weird Al Yankovic.
  • Advantage V Rack Bike Rack – This 2-Bike Rack mounts between your receiver hitch and your trailer (or tow bar). Huzzah!
  • PortablePET FoodTote – It’s a kibble holder, water canteen and bowls all in one sleek container that looks like it belongs in Dr. Mario.
  • PortablePET LunchBox – In the posh Tokyo neighborhood of Azabu, they call it the PortablePET Bento.
  • PortablePET Pet Partition – Ideal for keeping your pooch safely confined in your cargo area, or for making a citizen’s arrest.
  • PortablePET WaterBoy – Its spill-proof lid tells you that the soggy spot in your backseat isn’t water.
  • HitchMate Cargo Bar – The bucket is not the issue here. Dude, I’m talking about drawing a line in the sand. The cargo bar draws the line, and your cargo does not slide.
  • PortablePET PupHut – The best way to shade the fuzzy friend who’s riding in your truck bed—be it your dog or your cousin Lyle.
