I would appreciate it someone here could tell me whether I interpreted the IRS pub correctly regarding Charitable Contributions-

According to the pub I can deduct the value of all charitable contributions made in 2000, unless my AGI exceeds $193K. (I'm married, filing jointly). I know that it won't exceed $193K this year -so does that mean that anything I donate from now until 12/31 (such as my old auto) is fully deductible?

As for cars - is using the Kelley Blue Book value the accurate method for calculating fair market value?
