Typical Phoenix drill.....arrive at destination...peel shirt from back and change into dry shirt. Refill big gulp at Q-T(you guys are so lucky to have QT's!).
I got tired of wearing my big gulps, screwed a large coffee can to the floor by the tunnel. Those 12volt fans do at least blow hot air across the sweat.
Never used a swamp cooler...anbody here got experience with one of those mounted to the window?

I have been driving mine every day to work (35 miles one way) for a month now. It is amazing how comfortable it is. The white paint and the total lack of windows keeps it remarkably cool. It has been in the 90s a couple times, 95 one day. Felt fine. I freeze my butt off some mornings, though!!

My other car is a '99 Camaro, and the A/C is broke, and it's BLACK. Believe me, the difference is astronomical.

I am confident in the baja, I would take it on a longer trip now that I have ironed out the minor bugs.
