but i have seen some where, it might have been JCW or SUMMIT, it looked like one of those heating pads for your back that you pluge in. but you need to lay it on top of the engine? idk but i did see it. i would venture to say look in mags for old carb'd engines............talk about piss poor cold starting!

You can get block heaters for any car. Its definately a good idea for anytime below 20. I have a block heater for my bronco, and got one of those magnetic heaters for the oil pan on my subaru. Then again I used to drive my nissan every winter down to 30 - 40 below zero, always started.
Be kind to the environment and your engine and get one. The silicone heating pads for the oil pan are only $20. Block heater is best though.

yah , I loved driving my car (empty tank of gas) to exams , then having mrs gothier tell me to go home for 2 hrs ... love it so much ! i ended up just getting gas and going home for a bit

ok , so back on topic about a block heater , how much would it b 2 buy and get installed ? Is it an easy instal that I could do myself? How much am I looking at for a good one ? Is there and way to hide the tacky chord in the engine bay ? i dont wanna b driving down the road with a plug haning out...

Typically a shop charges right around $100 for the heater & installation.
You can just buy the heater for cheap if you want to install it yourself.
You don't have to see the cord, most people will have just the plug sticking out over the bumper. If I were you I'd just ziptie it up underneath.
