Best places in Los Angeles area for taking car photos
 
I've been wanting to take some better pictures of both my car and my friends car. I've got the equipment, and I've even tracked down a model that wants to work with us. I'm just at a loss for where exactly to shoot. I've done environmental and subject photography in the past, but I've never really worked with cars. Especially, two cars at once.

Primarily, I'm looking for multiple locations while trying to keep these things in mind:

1) Somewhere out of the way, with very little traffic and people. (Aside from not wanting to compete with car/foot traffic, I need areas that I can move the cars around easily.)
2) Somewhere in the hills overlooking San Fernando Valley or Hollywood
3) Somewhere industrial (preferably abandoned warehouses/factories that are somewhat accessible to the public.)
4) A beach location with parking very close to the sand (Somewhere off PCH?)

Also, does anyone know if the Sepulveda Dam is accessible to the public? I know they film movies in there all the time, but I'm assuming that's with some hefty costing permits.

Any suggestions you can offer would be great. Thanks in advance!

That is between 1088 Marview Ave and 1111 White Knoll Rd. 34.0706825,-118.2469057

That exact spot where they took the picture is now a fenced off area.
