Default Studio space...

I was wondering where I could find some studio space to use. I'm interested in shooting a car, or multiple cars... so I need something I can drive into.

I'm in the SoCal area... where do I start? Any ideas?

Thanks

"I'm interested in shooting a car, or multiple cars... " That's going to be expensive. Even our biggest studio would only hold about 3 comfortably. Try calling an ad agency & asking who shoots cars there?
Is there a reason why they have to be in a studio?

I wouldn't expect a hanger to have the flats he'll need, we don't know the final use, or what resources he has.
If all else fails, try this: A few Car Lighting Tips

Sorry I was unclear. I don't mean multiple cars at a time. Aren't there spaces where I can pull a car in and they already have lighting available?

There's no reason other than personal gratification actually. If it costs too much, I probably won't do it. However it would be pretty bad-ass to have studio shots of my own car.
