The audio is encoded as a separate stream from the video, so PAL
vs. NTSC is not an issue when just trying to extract the audio.  Note,
however, audio on DVD-Video is usually encoded at a 48 KHz sample
rate, so you would have to resample to 44.1 KHz when recording it as
CD audio discs for the car.  It's pretty easy to do that, though.
