His aggression sounds like defensive fear reaction and it is likely based in genetic temperament. Going places at a quiet time of the day and keeping your dog away from strangers.. let him look "from afar" coupled with patience and time (as in weeks/months) might see improvement. Otherwise you need to leave him home instead of taking him with you to the beach and other busy places. Some dogs are not social butterflies.

As to riding in the car, he should ride in a crate in the back seat. A dog riding in someone's lap is a dead dog (or an escaped dog) in the event of accident. The dog being loose and all over the driver is a distraction that could create an accident.

As to crating at home the first thing is to get him tired out. A small dog may need to potty after and hour in the crate. Get him out BEFORE he starts to make noise and have him potty then back in the crate for another 15 minutes. If he is noisy you leave him there until he is quiet and then get him out.
