    With my wife it's the opposite. 'No a/c, no me.'

    My car generates plenty of heat, but I tore the whole system out, from the knob to the the heater boxes, and rebuilt/replaced/refurbished them - cables, linkages, and hinges and flaps in the boxes.

    But she just doesn't like the shall we call it 'compact' dimensions of the car and the feeling of being in a sardine can. Me, I love it.

    I drive mine all the time . . . until it snows. Then he goes to sleep in the garage, usually about 3 months, until the season is over.

    The biggest problem we have around here is the HCL-like solution they put on the roads to melt the snow and ice. It eats up unprotected metal like nobody's business.

    I had a Beetle with the gas heater in it.....I feared it would leak and blow us all up so I disconnected it. If I had more courage I might still have it as the family car....my wife would be happy as it produced a ton of heat.
