Finding work / clients as an automotive photographer

I have been doing automotive photography for a good year and a bit now and I do believe I am ready to start working for clients, not only for myself as a hobby.

The problem is, I am clueless about how to get clients as a automotive photographer. By clients I don't necessarily mean random people with nice cars, because that is quite rare I would assume.

Is the good old, walking into a dealership tactic still viable ? Shall I create an online portofolio (besides instagram) and email it to magazines, dealerships, etc ?

Some tips on how to go about this would be very useful !

Many thanks
