American Cars Suck

I recently purchased a DVD for my car. It will be mounted under the passenger seat. The 7" lcd screen will pop out when you open the glove compartment. Pertaining to car DVD players, some may think it is stupid, but it is more for other people than me. I will not be watching it while driving;)

Cool, now hook up a PS2 and your passengers can play GT4 while cruising down the road. If I ever get aroung to it I've been planning on mounting a pc in my trunk. I recently scavenged a good laptop display, took it apart flipped the screen upside down so the hinges can be welded to the roof, now all I need is a WLAN card so I can transfer music and stuff from my house to my driveway. Think about it, all your music and no need for discs. The only problem is shock resistant mounting for the hard drive(s). (The way I drive makes my mp3 player skip:)

That laptop idea is pretty sweet. My monitor should be here today or tomorrow. I am building a box with padding inside to somewhat prevent skipping on the dvds.

Cool, remeber to make sure it's well ventilated. Heat can be a big problem with electronics.

my car(s)

I've got three (that run), two '88 VW foxes, and an '85 BMW 318i. My white Fox is my most used car, it's all stock on the outside with a lightly modified engine and a full custom suspention (built it when I was in college and had access to their shop). The other Fox is going to my brother. My BMW is down at the moment with a twisted drive shaft:(, it's in the process of getting tuned for amateur class rally racing. I've got a few more cars sitting aroud for parts and future projects if I ever get around to them.

Re: my car(s)

That's cool. I actually just got my car in November. It's a 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer LS. I haven't done anything really to it yet, just small things for looks, but hopefully in the near future I will be making some changes.
