In my experience the more you drive around with your pups, the less likely they will get car sick as they grow older. They get very used to going everywhere with you, and any car sick issues generally fade.
Start off with short trips (mine always went on the school run with me everyday from the moment we brought them home) Roll down the window for a bit of fresh air if you're worried they might be getting a bit "green". Both our GSDs travel in the boot of our car (it's not enclosed. Our car is a VW Touran.)
The roads out here tend to be really windy and bumpy, especially in the Western part of the country. Whenever we are travelling for more than 2 hours by car, I buy Motion Sickness tablets for our dogs from the local petshop. The ones I get are herbal ones and I give them to the dogs about an hour before we go on any very long trips. I don't actually think the dogs really need them, but I do it just in case. I've never had any puke accidents in my car as of yet.
Hope this helps.
