Electric seat warmers!. How soft have we become? A Model A gets too hot inside now, even in winter so I ask WHY?
Our grandparents used these car on a daily basis and overcame any coolness by dressing appropriately. Seems that level of common sense has not been learned by this generation.

Back in college, when I was driving my '29 A coupe to and from classes in 1969, I'd occasionally offer a ride to a young lady and on cold winter mornings stress the need to move closer to me so that we could share the warmth of body heat beneath a blanket. Purely altruistic motive, of course, as I wanted to make sure my passenger was as comfortable as possible. Don't know whether it was the cold or my boyish charm, but I was never turned down on the offer.

OK, I see a point in seat warmers if it is only the driver's seat that is fitted with one.

Yes, the heat in my 1951 Chevy BelAir wasn't very good on the passenger side. Girls liked to be comfy next to me.

Ditto for sure. Been driving this beast since 65 and the most we ever had for warmth was a lap blanket ! If I want warmth I have an SRX.

I did not start this post for the joy of the nay sayers, especially those dwelling below the Mason-Dixon Line. If you have no positive contribution, don't spoil this post for others.
