    well, the pioneer screen image was photoshopped in, but the install is definately a car computer-- between the griffen power mate and the slim cd drive below the screen-- now to just figure out what kind of car it is...

    wait-- it is a convertible mustang--from the dash design, late 90's early 2000's--time to check the build threads -->

    edit-- used the search term 'mustang' and came up with some similar builds, but nothing with a powermate mounted there...

    i agree, def a carputer, odd why pioneer wouldnt show one of their own units in a vehicle on their site. couldnt find the car on here either...sure its a mustang?

    Looks like a Firebird or Trans Am. The hood and the location of the passenger airbag look GM. But with Photoshop could be whatever you want.

    no...

    a more educated search reveals that it is a late 90's, early 2000's vette, non Z-06 model(it seems that the z-06 models had a digital climate control)

    a image for comparisons sake-- from www.familycar.com-- a 2001 vette


    i saw the way the dash wraps into the door panels, and immidately thought of a mustang...

    still no luck in the build threads though...

    The corvette looks more likely. Definitely not a Mustang
    Nice looking install though!

    the mirrors are a dead giveaway for a 'vette

    if you look closely, you can see the headlights flipped up too

    too funny. I think it's a real car install not anyphotoshop..probably a custom build from a shop that does CarSoft or IntelMobile. I doubt it's from these threads and being Im an avid car enthusiast( I read alot of magz..lol), Ive seen plenty carPC installs most mags give the specs on the system along with the custom workload and designer.
    Did it.. Done it... now I got to keep the neighbors kids away!!
