Default Block Heater

Do you bonnie folks have block heaters?

theJMFC and I were lookin under the hood of my car last weekend, and noticed some wire kind of hanging loose. after a little pulling around, we found the plug end of a block heater! it was a nice little surprise, so i was wondering if anyone here has experience with them in their 3800'*...

I am hoping to before winter, but since my car was "born" in Florida, it didn't come with one.

Mine does! Works great in the winter time, especially if its parked out side in the cold! Start the car, its warming up right away!
