    Oh, God. That's what he's trying to do--relive his misbegotten youth at the local drive-in on a Friday night with Daisy Mae Rottencrotch!

    yeah I have a decent yamaha surround system and IMHO it's more important than screen size.....

    I've got a Yamaha sub and vizeo sound bar. It ain't the best, but it pumps out some thump.

    Here's an idea. Prop a laptop on the Econolines dash, crank up the volume, lean back and enjoy the show. You should probably not watch porn in your driveway though, FYI and LOL.

    like others have mentioned you will need to have a darker room in general, this is assuming your going with a working mans version (affordable)of the projector/screen, to get any kind of quality you would need to spend well in excess of the largest high end flat screen available, while I don't have one I had a buddy who went through the process and he eventually ended up with something acceptable to him but he said, which I couldn't confirm that his final cost was just under 25k, his biggest complaint was still the room darkness and not having the "crisp" picture he was ultimately trying to get, the picture wasn't bad but definitely not near the quality of what is now a 200 dollar flat screen. my suggestion is to try and find some people where you can see real examples, harder said than done though, his screen was 10' wide and 8 +/- tall, the projector had to be ceiling mounted he said, not sure if there was any other option for his setup.
