More DIY bumper guards!

Hoboken411 reader NachoLibre sent in this picture of a unique bumper protector he spotted.

Hoboken411 reader photo of the day – 3/30/2010

“Saw this today on a car with PA tags. Maybe Hoboken’s reputation for dings and crashes precedes itself? It was some type of metal tube covered in foam and it was attached to the inside of the wheel well and the front grille. Looked like two portable snap on pieces.”

What makes you folks so sure this is a bumper guard? Sure looks like a flotation device to me!

Hoboken drivers, don’t risk any more water damage to your auto… get The Car Noodle™ and rise above the flood! Guaranteed to keep the poop tomato seeds out of your floor mats. The Car Noodle™ is just $29.95 plus S&H… and that’s not all, you also get a collapsible anchor! To order with your credit card, call 1-800-H2O-AUTO. Not available in stores! Makes a great gift!

Actually the photo is from the weekend, during a lull in the monsoon (or else I would not have been out)….good sleuthing!!!

My orthodontist gave me a contraption called a lip bumper in 6th grade that bears a striking resemblance to this.

Maybe he took it on St Patrick’s Day and that would explain everything.

I’m wondering if that is a commercial product, it looks like a shit-rig.

Are you sure that car isn’t wearing braces? I find it hard to believe that contraption offers much scratch and dent protection.

Hey wait a sec, I have a couple of green water floatation noodles amongst the missing….
