Which is likely the real issue - because you had your own insulation, you didn't learn how to dress properly for a Chicago winter. Get a decent coat and some gloves, maybe wear a sweater, you'll be fine.

From that perspective, I'd first find a good local shop and let them know you're looking for one; odds are they'll know a customer with a good car looking to move to another model. Oh, and thanks for the comments on the M Coupe guys.
