There are a number of vehicular accident pictures going around the internet but these struck home.

I am having problems getting heat in the interior and in the motor. I can drive in to work (40Km) at highway speeds and it will only get up to 71C-81C and will start to drop as soon as I slow down for the city. I already have the front radiator blocked off and it was only -18C (OF) outside...
