Chrysler 300M Special - 9" Car PC
I decided to change my Pioneer CD player to something more serious. Something that has video, audio, nav, bluetooth, iPod and other features. After spending some time reading car pc forums, I found some cool car pc software - Centrafuse Auto. It's an awesome software with gogreous user interface and all the features that I need. Plus many new features and plugins can be added. As I'm the comuputer guy, it won't be hard to make everything with my own hands :)

So I already got the 9" ASUS EEE PC 904HD laptop for my project:
