  • What should I call the next project?

    Well anyone that does know, the hiJack met its end yesterday.



    Now its time to move on.

    As far as the Car PC is concerned, I had decided to research a used car with a friend. Here is what I needed from the car.

    1) Had to be big enough for my dogs.
    2) Had to sit 7 passengers comfortably (The Dodge did hold 7 people, but the last row was cramped)
    3) Had to be easy to install the Car PC without heavy mods.
    4) Had to be customizable engine wise and exterior wise.
    5) Had to be easy to maintain.

    I decided to not go with a SUV, but instead go with a Van. A Van has more open area and will hide most of my stuff. The Van me and my friend have choosen that would work is a 2000 Chevy Astro. Yes its 11 years old, but it works and I can just flat out buy it and not have to worry about monthly payments. There is so much that can be done to these vans. Also because all seats are highback, including the second row, I can put a screen in each seat and not have to worry about finding a place for the screens. My 19 inch will fit nicely.



    Now all I have to do is wait for them to appraise the HiJack, then I will go buy this one. Now only thing is, what should I call this new car? i will not call it the HiJack because that name seems to be cursed.

    Here is a picture of what I hope it will look like when I am done.



    What should the name of this new project be?

    PS: Mods, if this is in the wrong place, can you move it? I guess it goes in the projects area?

      No.... I was thinking of maybe Project Pandora's Box, because its one big blocky box, and when you open it it will have something unexpected.

        Does it really need a name?

                  I hope everyone was alright! And P.S., that was really cool to watch the accident on video!

                  Here's one: Project Bit Bucket

                    OMG.... I didnt like that 2K1, LOL. Plus everyone knows I only go for guys my age or older. The stabbin wagon was pretty funny. Makes me wonder who's getting stabbed with what, lol.

                    Where did you get bit bucket from?

                    Kinda true, maybe I shouldn't name my van. Maybe just call it ZX1 after its license tag.

                    I am hoping you never see another accident again, because from now on when it comes to left turns, I am waiting behind that white line.

                      +1 for 2k1's name, although I would shorten it to Project Candy.

                      1) It plays on the Van = Candy Rock Spider meme
                      2) When its pimped...its going to be one seriously sweet ride

                      So for your dodgy mates, its point 1, for the nanna next door you are trying to explain it to, its DEFINITELY point 2

                      And PS: Sorry to see the ol' smash up dude, I hate that feeling you have just before you get metal on metal....done it a couple times, and don't like seeing it happen!

                        I think it should say something either
                        1. about your refusal to let things keep you down or,
                        2. Your love for your dogs.
                        Was thinking "Phoenix" or something like that, but it seems to cliche...
                        After a 2 year break, I'm back! There are so many new and familiar faces here!
                        New vehicle, new ideas!

                          Candy.... I don't know about that. Guruerro from the CF forums came up with Jack In The Box, a play on HiJackZX1. I kinda like it. You open a jack on the box and a surprise comes out. Similar to the concept I am doing. Believe or not, this accident was so fast, you have no time to react. Especially with an airbag hitting you in the face, then burning you.
