    I got fairly cheap N64 system and I was wondering if there's a way to use it in the van with a TV/VCR combo? The A/V part is easy--I can just plug the standard RCA-type audio and video cables from the N64 into the input on the TV/VCR. But what about the power? Does anybody know how to run an N64 on DC power? Is there an adapter available (I've looked, but I can't find one). I swear I've seen a Nintendo setup for a car, but I can't recall where.

    Your help is GREATLY appreciated!

    Many newer cars have AC outlets, that's probably where you've seen it

    You should be able to buy a converter for your car that would allow you to do exactly what you need to do. I would try Radio Shack first...they might have just what you're looking for.

    You need a power inverter.

    Around $30 at Fry's, DC-to-AC power inverter for cars.
    Something like this.
