    OK, wasn't sure where to file this, but i found this crazy Czech guy (are there any other Czech guys? :) ) who installed a PowerMac G4 in his Tatra 613. Which is BTW a pretty impressive car for it's time.

    Click for link.

    We had at least 2 or 3 topic with this car in the past few months.

    Use the search function.

    Still, cool car/mac.

    OK, sorry. I DID do a search beforehand and couldn't find a link, so excuse me. I thought it has not been on macrumors because my search turned up nothing.

    Search for mac installation in a car.

    It'd true that this has appeared before (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=57422), but it was months ago and the search function *cough* doesntreallyworkverywell *cough*

    and it WAS a cool mod

    Gods - Imagine what this guy could do with a DeLorean and a G5?! :eek:

    Even better, a DeLorean, G5, and a Flux Capacitor! :eek: :eek:

    Gotta fix that starter problem, though...

    That was just about the coolest thing I've ever seen. I saw a guy that put a linux box in his car... This totally blows him away. Wow.
