I found a Hagerty article about it:


Unfortunately neither the Ebay listing nor the Hagerty article state what's in the can, though I wonder if it's methanol or something. It's labeled as extremely toxic and flamable but also an anti-icing agent, so I feel like methanol is the cheap answer.

EDIT: Yep, it's methanol: NOS AC Delco Liquid Tire Chain LTC 400 Camaro Chevelle 1 Bottle | eBay Picture 4 in the listing shows it.

I remember when Volvo had a heartbeat sensor in the back seat so that you would know if someone was hiding back there before you got into the car
It's crazy, because that whole thing was an urban myth that never happened.

Anyway, they still offer the same system, but now it's for the deaths that actually happen, which is careless parents who leave their babies in the back of the car to die in the heat.
