The washer fluid tank has a heater in it! Crazy. I'm in Canada, where winter was invented, and I have never needed such a thing.

But I have a great idea: I'm going to re-route the washer hoses to the center console, right over my cupholders. And then I'll fill the tank with coffee.

No more stopping at the coffee drive-thru. I'll just hit the window wash button when I need a refill.

Sometimes I'm so smart, I amaze myself :D

Wow! You need to patent that modification, great idea.

While you are at it can you divert the AC to it as well for summer soda cooling?

Yeah! or beer. I'll run the line up my seat to the headrest and around my ear and straight into my mouth. I'll call it a BeerTooth headset.

Now we're cookin! :) You must be popular at picnics.

But you'll have to stop the car, or slow it down a whole lot, to get those weiners out. Maybe you can convert the center vent into a hot dog rotisserie and crank up the heat. The sunglass holder can be the bun warmer.

You are not being practical; matter could be solved with a rear wing.

I had thought of routing my A/C with a special vent to the front of the radiator of my GMC truck, during summer time.

Ha might as well shoot a line down to cool the brakes too.

I hope that bbq fin doesn't move depending on speed.

Cute gimmick.... I can imagine the grease splatter can't be good for the paint!

lol! That really is brilliant. Make sure you wash out the tank with boiling and cold water several times first, being drunk on methanol isn't fun and it tastes awful too.

Last week, I was following a Manta ( Can-Am kit car) An open cockpit rear engine - Crower Injector tubes sticking up from the rear tail. V8...... That methanol perfume was wonderful!!

OK, so two cars are needed. One for the barbecue and one for the booze.

Not a bad plan, but with all that coffee, you might also need to come up with some additional in car plumbing. :D

Damn, you're right. I forgot about that. But we do have to be responsible about "emissions" control, so how about this:
