Heat in my garage

I'll be going on vacation for about 10 days next month and I'll be leaving the Camaro locked in my garage. Temperature here has been around 92 degrees in the past few days. I'm sure inside the garage temperature is going over 100 degrees. Anything I should be concerned about while I'm gone heat wise? I usually leave the garage door opened halfway when I'm in the house. Is there anything I should do before I leave? Thanks.

Why is your garage so hot inside? It would help the structure as well as the car if you put vents in the roof, or in the walls high up in the loft.

I think what my friend ^^ is saying is that, even with vents (which most garages in the South have btw), it's still possibly for the temp to get over 100 F in there. Maybe exhaust fans, in the ceiling, or A/C in the garage

I'm from GA (CSRA region), so I do have some experience with hot summers.

I woulod only be concerned about heat extreme differences which may cause condensation where it may lead to rust. I agree that a vent is best. In the North East, many will take there cars out in the winter. They like to have them come up to temperature. This is bad in my opinion. The extreme dif in temp - rust!! As long as it goes up or down slowley all will be fine. Keep it dry. I use a leef blower when I wash for this reason as well. KEEP THAT H2O AWAY!

Don't worry about it. My Camaro is regularly subjected to heat like that in my garage and it still is in perfect condtion after 10 years. Besides, your car gets much hotter than that sitting outside in the blazing sunshine.

As long as your garage is connected to your house it should be cooler in there than the outside temp, or you need to insulate your walls. My camaro sits in the garage all week, this week we hit 110F, there were no problems.

Man 92 degrees is a nice cool summer day around me! We easily push well into the 100's on most summer days. I've even seen it hit 122 here in Vegas. We all have cars here and they all seem to still work! I don't think you have anything at all to worry about. Also, i think leaving your garage open to vent air is probably more dangerous than leaving it closed to keep people out.
