How can I outfit my car with an automatic recording device to protect myself and my passengers from crime and civil rights violations?

Inspired by this
comment, I got to thinking what it would take to automatically start voice recording in the event of an emergency. I imagine it would require some sort of satellite up-link which could then be routed to a computer at a trusted friends home. Can a cell phone call a computer that would automatically record the transmission? A cassette recorder on the front seat would be too vulnerable. The microphone would either have to be well-hidden or perhaps fitted with some sort of dead-man switch that indicates that the transmission was interrupted. Video would nice, but not essential.
