There are two options for me, depending on what I am wearing and carrying (CCW). If my primary weapon is being carried in a belt holster OWB, then my back-up (KT 32 or 380) can be moved from RF pants pocket to left inside jacket pocket, or shirt pocket, for easy access. If I do not take the time to attach an OWB holster, then a .38 or 9x19 goes into a small black tote bag (zippered top left open) which gets tucked just underneath the driver's seat, allowing easy access.

Holstered [snapped-strap black-cloth] and loaded Kel-Tec P-11 9mm pistol clipped into drivers-side door pouch and hidden under an umbrella, with loaded spare magazine above it, inside the interior door-gripping groove; both properly positioned and prepared. I have practiced with this spare magazine for quick reloading, making sure that it is laying and pointed the best and easiest way.
Thanks all for the comments. Some good advice from all.
I used to carry in a LaRue bugout bag, now I use a shoulder holster. Whether it's in the car, on foot, whatever.

OWB at 3 o'clock, no problem.

Appendix carry, around 1:30. That way all the time.
Works great in the car or out.
Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.
If I am going into a bad area or driving alot or on the tractor I carry BUG crossdraw.

Hey WHEC724: Thanks for answer. When you read the law in SC you read the term "on or about your person" when in your car. I understand we have no OC but what does "about your person" mean? I guess, according to the attorney general, it still means in your trunk, in your console etc as opposed to being "on your person", which is your CC permission just transferred to you being in your car. Bottom line: if you are in your car, the firearm is either in your normal or adjusted CC position or in your glove compartment, trunk, console etc. Another question: If you and several friends go off to a gun range and you are in a pickup truck--can you have the weapons (no loaded) on the seat of the truck? There is no other place to put everything.
About 95% of the time, I appendix carry my XD Service. That includes in the car or out. I have practiced drawing from that position, while seatbelted, with my training XD blue gun. I have it memorized. Right hand to the shoulder belt, thumb slide down to the release, push, clear garment, draw, slide over the wheel, present. There are other scenarios that may present and I have taken the time to mentally prepare those with actual practice presentation also.
However... Always remember that you happen to be sitting in one HELL of a huge weapon in it's own right. That slim little gas pedal is your best friend in a confrontation. It's a slim circumstance where you absolutely have to draw a weapon inside your vehicle to defend against a threat from outside your vehicle. If you are so boxed in that you have no avenue of escape while behind the wheel of a weapon weighing at least 3000 pounds, then by all means draw your weapon and prepare to win a fight....
But if you're that boxed in... shame on you for putting yourself in that position. ;)
