Walmart has bags and shot. 15-20 lbs on a windy day, times 2-3 bags per lightstand. Really helps the cause, when on location.

More pics, peeps...c'mon now. I know you guys would like to share more. I just don't see enough pics over in the EC thread...as I do here. ;)

Never photographed a car, but you might try underexposing the ambient a bit more and letting the flash make the car pop more. More like your second image
