Phonecamblogging: build a hotrod, hack into its brain via open source app

I visited the clandestine LA workshop of a mad scientist, and posted some phonecam pics on the fly to my phonecamblog.
I'm standing in the garage of a supercool geek guy who is building an obscure, rad, retro sportscar. He's hacking into its electronic "brain" by way of an IBM thinkpad running an open source application that gathers and analyses performance data. Steven is a technician with one of the world's largest aeronautics companies. He is also a fearless robot master and pyro terrorist. Once, he rescued me from a bunch of bees. (Sanyo 8100/Sprint)
