If you have bucket seats and not a bench you could put it infront of the shifter? Ive always thought about making a nitrous gauge pod or blower gauge pod and putting it there. Its out of the way and fairly nifty.

Other than that the only place I could think of would be on the steering cover (like inbetween the wheel and the gauges) but it would have to be a pretty small screen to not obstruct view

I know that you can get replacement rear view mirrors that have a built in monitor for rear view camera's. You're looking there anyways.
