Blog: 10 of the craziest ways to keep cool in your car

We all love a bit of sunshine during our holidays. But, with relentless heat, Brits don’t seem to know quite what to do with themselves, and when that happens, we’re all guilty of taking that extra measure (or two) to stay cool.

CarShop has asked how people have kept their cool in their cars with the recent stretch of hot weather, with some suggestions that we should be proud of as a nation, and some, which we know won’t be allowed on public roads!

1. Chicken cool-box


You never know, maybe the warmth would have put some life back into it! Either way, we think this is a fantastic way to reduce the risk of food poisoning.

2. The Italian Job

I think we’re just glad that we didn’t see anything like that on the M25! Oh, and we don’t recommend this either.

3. Take the plunge

Who knew Fords were the perfect solution to hot weather?  

4. Dairy-free driving 


We’re going to guess this person was in a pretty sticky situation the entire way home.

5. The hoodie invention


We thought that the best thing about a convertible was that you can put the roof up whenever you want?

6. Archaic air-con


Yeah, but just think of all the bugs. Did you know that in the US, as long as you have eye protection, you can drive legally without a windscreen?

7. The line of duty

Let’s be honest, we’ve seen worse. At the end of the day, we get the sun so rarely in this country – go big or go home! 

8. Ice ice baby

Well, that’s one way of keeping your cool – the mechanics of this is a little ingenious.

9. Suns out - bums out

Perhaps this isn’t the most ideal way to stay cool on the move – Is there a term for a moving moonie?

10. Roof rays
