How long does (actual, canned) spam really last?

I found a can of spam in the trunk of my car which, I think, was purchased in 1996. I wondered: Is it still safe to eat?
Me-Fites: How old was the oldest can of spam you ever ate? Is it true that spam's shelf life is "indefinite?". Is it a good idea to keep cans of spam in my car/boat/cabin for emergencies (I'm stranded in a blizzard and need meat, etc)? If so, should I worry that extended bouts exposed to high temperatures (100+ degrees F) in my car trunk will reduce the shelf life of these cans of spam?
