Help me build a cheap in-car camera system

I know there have been a lot of threads on the subject of in-car cameras. Trouble is I'm cheap. The home-made video camera mount I use just does not do justice to the experience. The essence of speed is not there on the film. My latest filming had the car hitting 120mph and looking like 40mph on film.
Folks this simply will not do.

So - can you cobble together a cheap VCR with an AC adapter hooked to a lipstic camera or two?
How can I capture the essence of speed?
How can I show the speedo / tach / road as seen by the driver?
Can the cops use this against me in court?
(skip that last one, just thinking out loud).
