If I wanted to create a sense of motion to imitate a car coming TOWARDS me, would I zoom in or out during the shutter cycle? I have a feeling that I zoom IN, but I just wanted to make sure.

You are correct...zooming IN will better convey what you are attempting. Depending on how bright it is where you shoot the car (you might want to close down to f/16-22) and vary your exposure time from 2-8 seconds, zooming in V E R Y smoothly.

Be advised this is VERY difficult. One thing: As your final image is really only the center of the film, I tend to overexpose a bit to compensate for the fact that I am only getting that portion exposed at the end of my shot...
I have tried to do it with race cars. Not a good idea. Generally I get a nicely exposed section of empty track, because timing this properly is nearly impossible...
