Usually on the floor of front passenger side or rear floor somewhere. I drive carefully and try to control the temperature in the car as close to 80 degrees as possible. They're usually opened in my tank (started aclimating) within 45 minutes MAX.

Sort of a related query:

How long does a fish have to be in its new home before you'd call it fully adjusted, on average???

I use a plastic shoping bag and hang that from the door lock. Keeps the heat off the bag and sways with the bumps on the way home. Oh, and my fish never really get fully adjusted, they all want to go back into the ocean....

Since I'm the passenger, I carry the fish. Usually I wrap them in a towel and place them on the floor in front of me between my feet. That keeps them from rolling a sloshing. I rarely drive to the LFS by myself (I friggin hate driving, only to and from work)

I have a cup holder, or put something in front of them in the passenger seat.

Seriously, I get most of my SW fish from a LFS that is a 2 hour drive...one way...So I use a cooler to place the fish in. With the cover on it keeps the fish pretty calm and safe.

If its cold outside, I'll toss a hot hands pack in the paper bag next to the fish to keep the temp of the water stable until I get home.
