gaming rigs are cool. or maybe a "over the top" rig. just see how much money you can possible spend on a computer.  

here's a car mp3 player that i bought a few months ago.
it's good. it's am/fm, cd, cdr, cdrw, mp3, i haven't found a cdr or cdrw that doesn't work in it yet. i've tried silver, black, blue, green, cdrs, cdrws, etc..
it supports id3 tags for mps, folders (it treats folders as disks on the disk. like if you burned an mp3 cd with two folders (one for country and one for western :) ) then when you put the cdr in it will read two disks, you use the disk button to change between the two then use the track button to change tracks (mp3s).
anyway, it's pretty cool.

i think by car mp3 player he mean a cheap computer made specifically for playing mp3's. not a reciever. they usually consisit of a hard drive, a motherboard, and a sound card, the os is geared for running just mp3's, and get's rid of all the other junk. you can buy these premade, but i forgot where. i know this is a crappy explination, but oh well.

oh, my bad.
cool idea but where would you put it? in a trunk or under a seat? it'd take up a good chuck of space huh?

have any pics or sites of one's that people have already made?

thanks for the info!

you usually ou them under the seat, and since there isn't much to them (a small mb, a bit of ram, usually on the mb, and a hard drive and sounds card) they aren't really that big, adn they can fit under seats, if put there carefully. and since the processor doesn't have to be fast, not too much heat. i don't remember where i saw these or what the program was that ran it all, i wish i did. but it seems that you could get a car mp3 player nowadays for pretty cheap, so why bother?
