Well, here we are for the 2nd edition of Baking Cookies in the Car. I first did this in 2016, I'll post the link below, unfortunately my pictures from before didn't make it. The forecast is 116 degrees today, currently 114 just after 12:00. I do have the interior sunroof cover open. I have a digital cooking thermometer tucked under the steering column in the shade. Currently 136 degrees in the car. I know you guys are on the edges of your seats, so I will keep you updated! LOL Link from 2016 [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

I've done that too on a manhole cover. Didn't work out as well as I thought. Hmm, maybe I'll try it on here later!

2 hour update: 149 degrees in the oven. Still 115 outside. I only plug the wire into the Thermpro to check the temperature, I bring the device inside while the probe is in the car. [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

I'm shooting for 4-1/2 or 5 hours. I haven't opened the doors yet so I'm not sure if they're soft or not. 4 hour update is pretty uneventful, still 152 degrees in car and 117 outside.

Reminds me of the time we went to a wedding and stayed at a hotel with bedbugs. My saturn was the last leg of the journey home, from Logan airport. All our laundry was in trashbags and we ran it through the dryer but I had my car's interior to think about. So, it being hot enough out, I idled it for a few hours with the heat on max, and a 1800 watt space heater running in there too. Got it up to 165 or so. Couldn't get any higher. Cars aren't THAT well insulated.

My sister once had a gray 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier. It was gray inside too. It was once so hot in there that a box of cassette tapes she had was partially melted. When she first got it there was even plastic on the seats. Imagine what that thing was like on a hot sunny day when you get in. It was awful. That car was an oven on wheels on sunny days. I live it south western Pennsylvania so it is not like we always have really hot weather either other than a few 95 F days maybe even triple digit. If this car was in a hotter place it would probably burn papers that were left inside it.

Although not automotive related, our Stemme S10 motor-glider (airplane) has a large bubble canopy for 2 side by side seats. Amazingly, one day the instrument panel cover started smoking like crazy. The canopy magnified the sun into a spot and fried the composite instrument panel cover.
