    Does your touch screen support VGA output?

    Great setup -- I love PCs in classic cars. Nice work.

    Yes it does. 800X600 display. My initial idea was to use the eeepc screen with a touchscreen kit attached but simply found the ribbon too short. Then I went and broke the screen anyway. So once the budget had been destroyed I found a shop demo screen at a fair price and am running it through the vga output on the eeepc. was a bit gutted about the eeepc screen as I reckon they are a good screen for this type of application.

    Very nice car. Is it hard to see the touch screen? It looks like it sits a bit too low and recessed to be easily seen (while driving at least).

    Thanks. Infact the view is very good. I can also see the screen unhindered through the steering wheel as well. Due to the Steering wheel being more akin to a bus wheel than anything else. Probably more an issue having to lean slightly forward to make adjustments but thats about the only complaint that I notice. Any more forward and the gear shift would become a problem anyway.

    A mate of mine has come up with a new future addition. Side profile camera mounted in such a way as to view burnouts in real time. Now theres a valued feature

    Hey looks pretty good, I thought about going with one of those consoles with my 66. I built it instead, turned out pretty good, check it out.
