Thanks guys! An environment would be cool. I thought about doing something here, but homework got in the way. Would be great if I could do it sometime in the next decade.
The basics of the car body paint came from the BlenderCookie tut on rendering a car. I did modify the settings/nodes to make it look more of the way I wanted (didn't really like it as shiny as he had it for starters), but that video covers the basics.
Outside the car body paint, I pretty much fiddled around with Cycles until I got something that looked alright, although that same BlenderCookie tut does show how to do various parts of a car as well.
