I suppose I'm lucky (because I probably wouldn't have gone this far myself), but my Jeep I bought used actually came with heaters installed on the block, oilpan and transmission. Even in the dead of winter, the heater is blowing hot in about one minute after an hour or two plugged in to good ole 110 Volt!

And don't forget the First Aid Kit. But that should be in the car year round.

Don't forget to have a warning device such as flares or a reflective triangle. I haven't taken my reflective triangle out of the box since I bought it, but I'm glad I have it just in case.

Extended exposure at 55ºF will kill you, but its a slow and painful death. The human body operates at over 96º, and 55º is plenty cold enough to bring it down below 94ºF, and ta-da... hypothermia.

Listen to grandma, wear that fugly sweater she knitted you
