His window mounted A/C unit at home seemed to do a pretty good job of keeping his house cool, so why not use it to keep his car cool too? The end result is this sunroof mounted home A/C conversion that substitutes cool looks for cool temperatures.

Looks like Scott’s civil engineering degree got some use after all.
