Sadly, TV Pitchman Billy Mays is dead. But before he departed this world, Billy Mays left us with a slew of gadgets designed to make car ownership a little easier. Below, a look at eight Mays-approved automotive products.

The Ding King
It's a do-it-yourself dent and ding remover with professional results. Do you randomly swing a hammer at your car? Just dial it away using the patented "power arch." Ask Wert, he apparently owns one!

Talk and drive at the same time without using bluetooth. Essentially an FM transmitter that hooks up to your phone, it's a cheaper, if not as advanced, solution. "Hey Carla, how is Project Send Shalomi A Cannibal Hooker going?"
