Frank's solar heated car!

It's black and it's 100 degrees out. Yeah I could bake/fry my meals in it.

Maybe you can throw a Plexiglas hood on it, paint the engine black and have a solar block heater too.

I use mine as a nice place to cure/dry wood and to heat-treat coatings and vanishes...although last week(112 degrees Farenheit) some of the wood actually began to lightly carmalise and the Tung Oil began to sweat out..

Wheres the button to give a thumbs down or better yet, the middle finger?

I thought this thread would be about heating the interior in cold climates or weather and feature a solar heater of some sort with a parabolic mirror and and fluids.

What I do is peel off the tint in the winter, add extra in the summer. I also put a black blanket in the rear in winter, white sheet over the rear in the summer.

Once I carried around empty boxes to take up room in the back to lessen the load on the ac.

No need for an air freshener when you bake cookies in the car .
