Personally, noisy vehicle or not, I’d simply use directional mic systems on each person and run the mic units to a standalone digital recorder such as the Zoom H2, you mention, or H1 or similar systems. Using a directional mic will isolate or reject more of the wind, ambient and related “noise” focusing more tightly (depending on how the mic is dressed on the talent) on the vocals. Another standalone unit, or the Rhode to your camcorder should do OK for needed ambient sound that could then be controlled in post so as to not overwhelm the narrative and to avoid gaps between vocalizations. I do think the H2 and other similar units probably do not have enough noise rejection or control to avoid being overwhelmed with other noises if their built-in mic units are utilized. Would definitely acquire a couple of wired directional mic components for getting cleaner conversation.
