I know this is an old post but, what are you hoping to do with that machine in the car, I would say if you are interested in mild gaming you should look into a laptop, cooling and case are taken care of that way, and an aftermarket overhead entertainment system for the screen. That would be much easier to install/power. If you are looking to do mobile streaming browsing the simple solution would be any of the raspberry-PI type ARM based Android/linux devices. Most are very affordable, very small, easy to use, and are powered by 5v USB.
Because we sit in traffic with our kids constantly here in Hawaii I headrest mounted Kindle Fires(in GM headrests that originally had screens in them) and got bluetooth keyboards with Gyros for games. The original power supplies in the headrests were 12v, so that was an easy swap with a 2$ cigarette lighter to usb adapter(I gutted them, soldered them in, and heat shrinked the whole mess). All I do now is plug my phone in when i get in and turn on my hotspot, and they can both stream netflix on the road.

P.S. I just realized how spoiled my kids are.
