I want to simulate sitting in a car listening to music playing on the car stereo? How do I do that in Audacity?

Not in the way you think.

Make any change to the sound through Effect > Equalization and build the scene into the script.

"Here we are in the car.."

There is no standard "car stereo sound button."

The other way is make a very minor change to the sound (any change) and add background traffic noises.

A cousin to that is make driving around noises. Pretend it's a manual transmisson. Those have an acoustic signature.
