For FM reception in motion, the stock 'whip' antenna on most vehicles is at or near resonance and is a very good antenna for the application. In theory you could look at 5/8th wave and collinear antennas. Both of these options have the potential to lower the angle of radiation closer to the horizon which would give you a few dB of gain compared to the 1/4 wave over ground plane (the typical stock automotive FM antenna concept).

Search Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.
