Just now found out why these bumper thingies were called Dagmars...

It seems there was a 50's actress/model (this is the first time I ever heard of her, too) who had the stage name Dagmar. She was buxom and apparently liked to wear low-cut (and often sequined) gowns, showing her, um... "bumpers" off.

According to Wikipedia, she was amused and not at all angry when she got word that car-bumper thingies were named after her... :)
