That's a normal meaning of a hot car, but not in this case.  Here it simply means the car is hot, temperature-wise.


OK I'm giving you half marks JL.... indeed, in this case we're talking temperature.
But normally a "hot car" is a stolen car.

Wanna see some "hot cars"?  Click here!

But I really don't know which is more "normal", steamy or stolen.

Why is a stolen car called a "hot car"? Is it too hot to handle or is it normally a hot (attractive) car?

Too hot to handle and must be "moved" fast to avoid being caught with it in your possession.
The term applies to all stolen property.... but not people.

Thank you.  I'll take it for whatever reason.

BTW, do you know what this particular inukshuk represents?
