Just got home myself. Was stuck below 80 the whole way, way too many police on the road on a Saturday night and the George Washington Bridge was a killer haha
Anyway, had a great time. Nice to finally check out other CarPCs!
Really, mp3car, thanks for doing this.
Bugbyte, it's no problem. Troubleshooting can be fun haha
Sorry I missed this one. Sounds like MP3Car did another outstanding job of hosting the event. KUDOs to all who participated.
Now get those pics and videos on-line so the rest of us can see what we missed!
Next year bugbyte will officially sponsor a nationwide gumball rally to baltimore!
Sorry about the quality. (I'm sure others got some better ones.)
nice pics! I'm excited to see more and the videos as well.
:rofl: i'm in

I was like a kid in a toy store....wow! I was so excited running from one car to the other, I was dehydrated, all sweaty and bouncing all over the place! My cousin told me afterwards that there were burgers and hotdogs, but I was so excited I was blind.
I feel invigorated, and the effort put in the project, validated. We tried to take as many build pictures together, to put a workblog, that this also has grown into a website of its own, reaching back into my original carputer builds.
Im sorry Bugbyte, but once I scan a couple of my old pictures, I will de-throne you with my 1972 mustang carputer.
Seeing everyone' projects truly made us feel part of a community thats reaching into the future and making it happen today.
Totally awesome. thanks everyone !
Awesome! What the heck was in it?! A PDP-11?

Psh... all carputers must BE an atari with original rally software :P
