Cold snaps are springing up all over the United States and Europe like mushrooms in a hippy’s grow box. Just as the eastern seaboard began thawing out, snow storms started to drop their wintry white stuff all over the midwest and Colorado. Over in Brussels, thousands of travelers found themselves trapped when Eurostar train services were halted by the snow. It’s bedlam out there!

In keeping with the holiday spirit, we want to share the gift of warmth to everyone. No, we’re not flying you out to San Diego. And no, we’re not sending you tins of sterno. We’re showcasing a movie trailer for one of the 1970s’ shtik-iest car flicks: Corvette Summer. Haven’t seen it? Here’s a quick synopsis.

Though it won’t stimulate your intellect, it certainly stokes the flames of nostalgia. Take a look:
