Car roof reflector
A reflector attached to the roof of a car reflects much of the heat away
Much of the heat cars gain in the summer
comes through the roof. An insulated
reflector attached with magnets (or even
glue) to the roof of a car reflects most of
the heat away, and the insulation reduces
the heat conducted through the roof.
In the same vein

||I'd bet more heat comes in through the windows than the roof.
||Actually I just got my car painted
yellow, after having it black for 2 years
and the temp difference is very
noticeable. But I also have tinted
windows, but so would anyone who
lives in the south and does not want a
150° car in the summer.
||Unlike the carbrella, my device would
stay on the car even while being driven.
||ups trucks employ such a panel, it's painted white. (+)
||Hmm... "Carberella". Now there's a pun just waiting to happen.
