Longer exposure for low light. Tripod is a must if you plan on shooting something with a shutter speed less than 1/250 handheld. ISO; the lower it is=less noise in the pics, so if you're using a tripod, it's not too big of a deal.
A 20d is a nice camera. If you want to take low light photos handheld without a flash, look into getting the Canon 50mm 1.8 prime lens. $70 and is amazing. A flash isn't always necessary at night for car pics since it'll reflect off the cars, and people don't usually try for that. I'd suggest reading the manual some more, check out www.flickr.com
and search around, and just keep playing with the camera.
