This is the AP article picked up a few days ago in various paces, but with new parts added which highlight the local car dealership that accepts BTC.

Bitcoins — a virtual currency invented in the online world — will now buy a car in Overland Park.

Fred Blocher Norman Vialle, owner of Overland Park Jeep Dodge Ram Chrysler near 87th and Metcalf, accepts bitcoins, virtual currency on the Internet, for automobile purchases.

“I think we’re probably the first car dealer in the United States” to accept bitcoins, said Norman Vialle, president and owner of Overland Park Jeep Dodge Ram Chrysler.

The car dealer at 87th Street and Metcalf Avenue signed up earlier this month with BitPay Inc., a bitcoin version of the popular PayPal online payment service. And he said some prospective buyers have made inquiries.

Vialle, the Overland Park car dealer, said his interest in technology led him to mine bitcoins about a year ago. Values then ranged between $10 and $15 per bitcoin, he said.

Bitcoin virtual currency gains following, but will its bubble burst?
