Once you get out on those balconies, wind chill is a very serious concern. haha

Funny that. Because that's exactly how the current system was promoted, as something that was "easier" to understand.

This is getting out of order...but kinda interesting. Would the metal surface of a car in direct wind contact of a say -50 'wind chill' be the same surface temp of the same car that was behind a brick wall on the same day?

All that windchill would do to an inanimate object is cool it faster. It won't cool it below the ambient temp. The two cars would both reach the same temperature, the one protected from the wind would reach that temperature slower.
