Heres a tip..

Play with lighting. It makes a huge difference on how the image comes out. I personally prefer to take pictures with the sun coming from the background closer to sunset, be in the shade, or have artificial lighting. Given the opportunity....

Reason why I hate direct sunlight on the car is because it makes a white spot and very hard to edit out.

Also save up for a Polar filter! makes a huge difference.

Also, the best tip I can give to someone starting out is just play with your camera. I don't care what the book says. The books for photography are so generic that they don't always apply as authors have different cameras, and different setups from you, unless they have a book for your camera. Bring your camera like your a tourist. The best things to learn from IMO, are Landscape photography, and portraits. Both of these teach you lighting, angle, rule of thirds, and how to setup your camera for a shot. By this point, you should already know/figure out what kind of style you like in your photography. Then apply it to cars. Best of luck!
