Somebody else had something similar once upon a time. Honda Element, maybe? Don't remember. I doubt the ramp is big enough for a big dog wheelchair, but how terrific for walkers! It looks SO easy to pull out.

Somebody said this is a concept, NOT a production model, but who knows...

That is brilliant. Did you show it to Mark? What a great idea!

The Honda idea was an open compartment hollowed out under the dashboard where a small dog could ride safely, like a big glove compartment with no door. It was a good idea because you could see your dog and in a sudden stop it was protected by already being against the firewall/whatever so it could not be propelled forward (no need for doggy seatbelt harnesses).

You should send it to Mark! :smart:

Done, via FB and email. Not sure if he'll get either one, but I tried!
