That's cheating, of course you can fit more if all your computers are
plastic with hinges.
Since I come from a VW/Audi family, I know you can't have enough Jettas,
in fact, last night I was pulling an alternator out of a Jetta to build a
Golf in 6 inches of mud in a horse pasture. This thing is a miracle car,
this guy gave it to my brother (who just blew the motor in my (well his)
4000 Quattro). He was giving it away because he accidently filled the
radiator with battery acid, and decided he didn't want to know how much
damage he did (he did flush it right away as soon as he realized his
mistake) hasn't been started in 7 months, through the winter here in NY.
We put a new radiator in it, took an alternator out of a Jetta and stuck
it in it, put a new battery in it, and the darn thing started first try,
without even touching the accelerator or anything. That's like digging a
computer out of a snow bank, blowing it with a hairdryer and booting it.
