    Blue Cars with Grey Interiors

    Just heard that Dark blue cars with Grey interiors heat up faster than any vehicle out there. This is important for individuals who have children riding in their vehicles or elderly or with people who are sick.


    People with these cars gets heatstroke faster than any other vehicle on the market

    When I lived in the southwest, white cars with a/c were the favorites but I think that any car with good a/c will do OK. It is equally important to stay hydrated.

    Historically speaking, one of the most infamously hot cars ever was the AMC Pacer. Huge glass canopy made cooling it down a real challenge; and if you left it in the sun - especially if equipped with the optional Levis seats (with brass rivets, no less!) you'd have rotsa fun when you came back.... 8)

    Interesting, but...any vehicle, regardless of interior or exterior color, will become an oven very soon when parked. Jut two days ago a young woman was arrested in Phoenix for leaving her 7-month daughter in the car while grocery shopping. A nosy oldster spotted the kid, called 911, paramedics broke a window out snd transported the infant. The child didn't die, but it's too early to tell if there might be lasting damage. !20 minutes - in 105F temps!

    Window tinting helps, to a certain degree. Get the good stuff that blocks UV, not the cheap tint that doesn't (and turns purple, as well. )

    Something like a metallic film, as made by 3M.

    Be sure to follow your state's guidelines so far as how much light it can block. NC inspectors will occasionally check, and they will fail you if it's too dark. Which means an expensive and ugly situation involving lots of razor blades.
