i know that you can take an engine and put two turbochargers on it, my question is can you take an engine and put a turbocharger and a supercharger on it?

The idea being that while turbos draw from the exhaust and supers draw from belts; could you combine the two to come up with some happy medium.
[disclaimer: this question is primarly acedemic. i'm really just curious if it's even possible]
[double disclaimer: i have a non-collectible 1965 Mustang (the engine and transmission have been upgraded to a 302 with a C6 tranny) that i am thinking about doing horrible things to. Since i can't get collectors plates, i was thinking it might be fun to turn the car into a proving ground for more modern technology, led display dash, GPS, high-end sound system, shoulder harnesses, etc.]
My understanding is that turbos are easier to deal with, but i really like the idea of building "the last of the V8 interceptors, eh?"
