Can't remember now but someone used it on Usenet, against someone
like the clueless Firth, about 8 or 9 years ago.

I've often seen 50�C at dash vent in UK.
Cracking dashboards is a problem in hot climates. Other thermoplastics
may lose shape.
Styrene at 400�C is about the lowest temp that stuff the manufacturer
puts in a car interior will autoignite at. Paper or PVC = 450�C.
Though some vapour given off by heating the car may have a flash point
lower than that but that takes a source of ignition to start the burn.

Not Centigrade, but *Fahrenheit* 451 rings a bell, for some reason...

Fahrenheit 451 was the title of an Isaac Asimov story

Allegedly the temperature for spontaneous combustion of paper. I think I
might have a copy of the book somewhere but I am too idle to search it out.
