Quite cool. I'm interested to see how it works out.
you using mini itx boards?
I'm assuming you've seen this:
In theory this fits a standard DIN:

I hate to rain on anyones exciting parade.. but there are machines out there the size of a CD walkman.. running well over 1.2 GHz with 256 mb of RAM...

ive seen/worked on those damn book PC's that come to 2.0ghz.
ive seen/worked on those computers that are the side of a CD-Rom drive. (slim dvd/burner, 1.8ghz, 512ddr, gf go, sblive5.1, usb (4), serial)
i was like DAMN! and it was from the guys car. lol. i got the luxury to work on it while i still had my job. (i quit today). it was fucking cool. the guy had a LCD and winamp hooked (like i do myself) and numpad with the numbers removed and commands put on. (play, stop, jump)
ran win2k. oh, it had a 80gb hdd too!
That looks like an awesome project. Let us know how it turns out.
I had a similiar setup in my car using a compact laptop mounted underneath my seat. Worked pretty damn good. Had 7" widescreen LCD headunit (Clarion). Lots of fun.
