Simply put, assign an x, y, and z value to for the location of the car and prior to drawing the car call glTranslate*() to place them wherever.

Ofcourse, you'll want to add a vector for direction, a velocity, and countless other attributes to properly model a "real" car, but for now just focus on translating to a position and drawing the model. To move it, just increment or decrement the position value.
