I remember long road trips all over the western states and up into Canada.
That was about 40 years ago in my '65 Stingray. I was young and adventurous
and thought nothing of driving a day and night straight to get somewhere I
thought might be better, bigger, higher, lower.......
Loved it all, lived out of that car for weeks on end, camping and exploring,
and lots of fishing. Great memories of three summers, including some of
cooking my feet and legs from the build up of exhaust heat inside the car.
That wasn't so good.
I am now retired (finally) and want to recapture some of those feelings in a
long trip in my new C6 coupe. Coast to coast. I am wondering if that heat
thing is still a problem in these new Vettes when driving 6-8+ hours at a
If cabin heat soak is still a problem, what can be done to help reduce the
affect? Insulating under floor mats, or between engine/trans (auto) and the
body, or even directly wrapping the exhaust? Or?
Is it going to be an issue? If so what to do?
