Default Hottest Outside of Bonneville temp

Took this picture driving home from Fl to NJ. It stuck around this temperature from around 600 miles. Driving 85 mph Full A/C full trunk and 4 people. Car never broke 190 degrees ever in second gear traffic. Whats the highest you have ever seen.

Nope, not my wedding. It was at one of my shows. Don't like the winter shows.

Mine showed 106 parked in the sun. The hottest while driving was 104. I think the closest weather station was reporting 96. I was in central Florida where the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic breezes crash and cancel each other out. Its always crazy hot and humid there.

I've had 106 in my Avalanche. Haven't run the Bonne in the summer yet.

And yes 106 was the actual outside temperature, not from sitting in the sun.

107 parked in a Mall for a couple hours. It was definitely hotter in the closed up interior.
