Default Cool Breeze air scoop

Ordered one since I pulled the AC awhile ago. Big ! I was driving the past two days in 85+ degree weather without AC, and I won't say that I was nice and cool, but it was more than tolerable compared to having roasting legs before. It really works to cool off your legs and feet which keeps the rest of you feeling cool as well. Air flow starts at speeds of 20 mph and it stayed on rock solid at speeds in excess of 85mph as well. You can install and remove in under 1 minute. Highly recommended.

Are you going to put a screen on it to keep from throwing bugs in your lap? Like bees, wasps, and Junebugs?

I ran across that thing the other day somewhere. I may get one. My car has the A/C removed and gets damned hot here in Middle TN during the summer.

I read about that, but haven't had any problems....yet. I guess if something happens I might. The one time I got hit in the face by a bug was when it flew in from the side of the car so go figure.

New guy here. I second the recommendation on the Cool Breeze. We're having a record heat wave here in the midwest (like everywhere else, I guess), and this little item works very well. I still don't use the AC.

all the rage at the Gap meet this year.

one of the best ways to cool the cabin in the NA miatas (i've found) is to wrap the heater core tubes on the driver's side, under the dashboard and add some heat insulation under the carpet on the tranmission tunnel.
