Sure, in the trunk.

I'm fine with cramming as munch as possible in the trunk or hatchback
area.  I'm also fine with fold down rear seats.  And I certainly put
regular towers, desktops, moderate rack mount machines (e250 and larger)
and more in the back seat or passenger seat.

But I draw the line at things like Crimsons in passenger seats.

Although I did once do a 3/180 in a back seat wrapped in a cargo
blanket.  It barely fit and made me rather nervous the entire time.  I
had expected it to fit in the trunk or I would have borrowed a van.
