Default How hot does it get inside your Bonneville?

I think I've hit a record today. Right now it is 32C (90F) outside, and with the humidex it is 41C (105F) out. The bonneville has been sitting on the driveway all day, so I put a thermometer inside (not in the sunlight) to see how hot it would get.

Bonne Sunbatheing:



Well, I guess I will never know, because this guage only goes up to 55C (131F). :o



My crappy camera couldn't take a picture of the scale for some reason, but it is maxed out. The leather seats burned me, the seatbelts were untouchable. Here is a neat picture of the sun with the crappy camera:



This is what I do on a rediculously hot day with nothing else to do...

I saved the sun pic and looked at the properties info. Beats me why your camera decided to use a 1/18 second shutter speed at f/2. In layman'* terms, those exposure settings are more in line with that of a moderately to lowly lit (depends on film speed though) indoor room.



I got tint, so I guess my temps don't get too bad. Still a black car though
