Default Coolant warmer

OK, I need help from my northern friends. I have a serious street car but it takes a while to warm up in the driveway. What can I use to bring the coolant temperature up, so I can crank and pull out in less than a couple of minutes?
Thanks...

Still have a thermostat in it? If it is a 160 degree, change to 180 or 192. Does it have an electric cooling fan? You can add a temp controlled fan in it.

Block heater or oil pan heater on a timer to turn on 1 hour before you roll.
