You'll find this answer at the start of Chapter 3. Gatsby used both his Rolls Royce and his station wagon to transport guests to his parties.

Gatsby uses a station wagon and a Rolls Royce to ferry guests to and from the train station. He employs these luxury automobiles as though they were common taxicabs or jitneys. His cavalier attitude toward these possessions is nicely paralleled in the scene where he shows Daisy his collection of shirts.
