Run a pipe from your ac compressor that feeds a membrane built into your leather car seats, cooling them down on hot sticky summer days.

Baked, though with an independent cooler. http://wardsauto.com/ar/cooled_seats_mpg/

       Sort of baked (see link). But welcome back to the HB!

       Cooled seats = baked. I've ridden in Lexi that pumped A/C air through the seat. However, it wasn't the magical experience I hoped for. Anywhere my body was in contact with the seat it blocked the air flow, so cold air only ended up going nowhere but my gentleman's area.   

       Lawrence's idea is to run actual refrigerant through the seat, like having another evaporator in the seat itself, which would solve the problmes of ventillated seats. I think that this is unworkable, but it would be easy (albeit a maintenance nightmare) to run frigid water from the evaporator through the seat.
