The wirewire car charger will work if you get a firewire cable that's thin enough that it doesn't get in the way of driving because it's so bulky. The iTrip isn't going to work though, it's for the later iPod models.

I think Belkin do a more standard fm transmitter than takes a triple A battery and has a short wire to connect to any 3.5mm female jack. That should do the job for the tunes part. Or if you're feeling adventurous you could open up your dashboard to see if your stereo has an audio in port. Even cd multichanger ports can sometimes be hacked to work with a generic audio input (if you don't plan on useing a multichanger).

They show two models of the iTrip on that page. This is the one that'll work with the iPod in question.
