Anyone ever seen a old school swamp cooler mounted on a car without a door frame? Im toying with the idea of getting one and using my roof rack as support but I dont have any clue how exactly it will work on a celica.

ps I yanked all ac yeeeears ago and this is more for a rat rod old skool look. plus if it does cool the fiance down than thats just a plus.

Imma call on a ad for one tomorrow morning. shall see.

In Virginia?

This might be a decent idea in Nevada or New Mexico. The high humidity in Virginia will likely make this little gain. You'd be better off with a scoop directing air inside the car.

I'm sure you could mount it to that rack with no problem. Opening the door may be the only hurdle.

Yeah I know the humidity is a issue but I know it would still make a impact on these 92+ days. Yeah Im trying to play it out in my mind how to mount it and be able to open and close the door.
