I'd probably try select by colour first, and/or the fuzzy wand.
Investigate the litle slider in tool options for how exact the colour
march has to be. If you get the whole car selected, grow the selection
by a few pixels and feather it, and then you can go to
colours->map->wheel and "rotate colours".

The layer mask solution is a good one but it's fairly sophisticated to
start with.

The "Beginning GIMP" book has a lot of really good tutorials, I'd
recommend it as an introduction.
