Not quite a vehicle, but a Hot Air Balloon.

Does anybody know of a way of tracking a hot air balloon and downloading it's GPS position onto a laptop in a car, and also showing the car's position on the same map?

You can buy GPS tracking for some types of mobile phones and PDAs. Have one in the balloon and one in the car. You'll be able to see the locations on the unit - no need for a laptop.

You might be able to do this with CoPilot and it's live tracking.

You can also install a WorldTracker SMS receiver in the balloon and query its position via SMS
