I don't really want kids or get married so i think i can choose my car as my wife. :D
Well, my past relationships don't work because i move around too much because of my job. The only thing that has stayed with me for roughly 9 years now is my MR2.
Right now I'm in Spring Lake, NC. So anyone who's into the car PC scene can come visit me and help me out.

UPDATES: 19 feb 2008
stalled once again. lesson learned.
i got the case, but it doesnt support 3.5" hdd or dual hdd so my dual hdd adapter doesnt fit. great.
the GL701 (i already opened & drilled and everything) i got is the newer ones. really good even in daytime.
2003 HYUNDAI ACCENTS's dash DO NOT fit with the Lilli GL701. it will let the front part show, but unless u want the screen facing the shifter, no cheese.
YET AGAIN I am stuck between a rock and a hard spot.
from toyota mr2 to hyundai accent :(
i hate to admit defeat but the only way i can use my carPC is to install it in my accent until i can get my mr2 up and running. then when i do get it running, i have to get an amp/carPC rack. it might take a good while before my mr2 see's a computer. but if takes a long long time, i might just build a new beefier one.
91 mr2 -> 03 accent
since everything is stock on the accent, i wont have 5.1ch audio.
NO BASS. :tape:
no touchpanel switch
oh well.. it can be worst.
here's some pics.
i finished wiring the power hookup cables (8guage)
installed the mic for the possible speaker phone application/voice control
RCA cables tucked in
USB cable for keyboard, usb dvd, flash or whatever installed.
Metra hyundai wiring harness prep'd (ready to pair to the lilli gl701)
Cleaned out my trunk :D
got this from toyota/scion in myrtle beach day after thanksgiving :D
