What is the best way to light a scene in a car at night?

I'm wondering what the best way to light a scene in a car at night preferably cheap to make it look as natural as possible. Kind of like the way the inside of the cab looked in Collateral.

Jack, read the thread "I Found a Sweet Light..." it should have exactly what you're looking for.

if you're on a limited budget, craftsman flourescent snakelights work like "charms". teehee, I kill myself. Duct tape the bodies where they are out of shot to get the heads bent up to where you need them (also out of shot).
