it makes me giggle because this is exactly how my dad shops for cars. Especially panel three.
Pfft, air conditioning. That's what openable windows are for! What you really need is heating. At least here in the seasonally snow-covered parts of the world.
I'm not really sure when you need AC in a car, unless it's just when you're forced to drive so slowly and surrounded by so many other cars that opening the windows would not be cooling nor good for your health, i.e. circumstances when you shouldn't be driving a car because every other conceivable means of locomotion would be faster and cheaper.

Or if you live in Alabama.
Or if it's raining and you would rather not get soaked
Or if your really close to the sun, but for some reason not getting the heat, just the flame. I'll shut up now.
Or if you're one of those people out there, like me, who actually lives in a place called Australia.
Or when you are going fast enough that the wind threatens to falcon punch you in the throat
Australia? People actually LIVE there?
Or if you have long hair. If the wind is blowing fast enough to cool me off at all, it's blowing fast enough to tangle my hair beyond all repair and even get bugs trapped in it. I got a horsefly caught in there once -- it bit me twice before I could get it out again. No more open car windows for me.
or if you live in Florida
Or if you wear contact lenses.
Or if you live in southern Illinois - it's not the heat, it's the humidity!
I am from Texas, the state where AC is life-support and heating is a death ray.
Or if you live... really anywhere that is not covered in Ice for most of the year, so like, 80% of the habitable world.
To the person who doesn't think they need air conditioning:Alabama + 98 degrees and humid +8 hours of band camp= you will die wothout air conditioningSimple mathamatics learned by every high schooler...in the band
Note from Scott: To be fair, I used to think air conditioning was optional, when I lived in Seattle. Now I live in Orlando, and I won't consider a car without it.
