Sounds like your car needs a new thermostat.  Both my 'ex' 98.5 and my 
current '02 _always_ reach(ed) normal operating temperature, regardless of 
the outside temperature, even at -40 (C or F, take your pick ;-) !!!  It 
_did_ take the engines longer to reach normal operating temperature, but 
they did get there.
