I remember reading about a guy who had fitted a PC into the dashboard of his car (A Mercedes if I remember correctly). I think it was in a old Overdrive issue. It was a very slick fit, with touchscreen monitor et all.

Yes, I remember. In fact it was hardly a month or so back that he floated the idea. He suggested that he already has a prototype ready. This one was to be a complete in-car system with reverse assist, health parameters of the car and every other possible things bundled into one. His initial cost calculation was coming to something around 55000, if I am not mistaken. The guy was from Delhi. However I could not find the link either.
