>- What is the largest computer you've fit into a car?

Complete Nova 1200 system (full rack) in an early 80's
Honda Civic - basically, the top of the rack (with a
9-track drive) wedged in far enough so that it didn't
fall out (good thing it has a strong roof) - the rest
stuck out the back and weighed the car down to bottom
out on its springs - The front end felt *VERY* light,
and it would feel as if the front wheels came up if
you accelerated while going over a bump.

Fortunately I didn't have to move it far...
(Wish I had taken a picture!)
