A/C the garage?

What is the generally accepted view of airconditioning the garage? I just bought a 67 Chevelle SS and I live in the southeast US where it is very humid. Will bringing the car in and out of an a/c environment have a bad effect on paint, etc?

Not that I am aware of. I had my T-type in my air conditioned garage 9 years before I sold it (the car) this summer. The humidity control has to help.

I haven't had a problem here in Alabama. Seems I get more work done with heat and air than I did before. The fridge full of beer helps too.

In one word "No".

Now if one really wants to start analyzing, and going to the very extreme the other way , one could say "Yes". Taking a hot car into a colder environment will cause condensation, and in 6 months you won't have floorpans or a trunkpan left. Total climate for the rust starting.
