Heat and UV rejecting tint, windshield shade if you cannot park in the shade, windows slightly cracked to reduce heat buildup, drive with windows cracked about two or three inches.

Most importantly, I get a small freezer bag/box or a used plastic water bottle filled with iced water... and I will place it alternately behind my neck, lower back, under one leg on the seat. The ice makes a heat exchanger of your body's own blood circulation system. You will feel cooler while the ice lasts.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
