I know a guy that had something that looked like that on a VW bug. He said you put ice in it and there was a string he pulled to make it "blow" cool humid air on him. He said it was invaluable in AZ where he lived.

it's a swamp cooler, it has a water resivor, and a spong, and it cooles thru evaporation, if you live someplace that is dry they work really well, if you live someplace humid, then they don't work as well.

VW Cooler

Ahhh like a wet t-shirt in a breeze - got it. Leather jacket on a hot sunny day on a motorcycle many people couldn't understand why I would wear one and what they didn't understand was that the leather holds moisture and releases it on the inside cooling itself and you as air flows down the neck of the jacket. It also insulates you from the hot sun.
