Please meet my brand-new hero, Scott Dawson:
Mr. Dawson lives in Houston, whose weather takes words like "muggy, humid, hot, horrible and hellish" and kicks the everliving tar out of them. And that's in January. It's worse in the summer.
Mr. Dawson was living in Houston, in the summer, with a car that has no air conditioning. He didn't have the $1,200 he needed to set his car up the conventional way. But no matter, because Scott Dawson is a freaking genius
. He took a window unit home air conditioner, some duct tape, straps, vents and some elbow grease and solved his problem quite well.
Here's another view:
I have been in Houston in the summer, and have tried to cool my vehicle down with conventional automobile air conditioning. It takes a looooong time for the sweat to stop pouring down my face. A long time. I bet that Scott Dawson now has the most comfortable car in all of south Texas. The article says he's a civil engineering graduate. Looks to me like he'll do fine.
