What you have will work just fine to start with. Get a tripod & see the links in my Sig.

There are too many possibilities and options to mention in the limited space of a forum. The best step is to get away from the computer and find as many cars to photograph as possible, at races and at car shows. Google searches can help you find the places to go.
