isometric view of car following a path but change car graphic to match the orientation of the path

I want to animate the cars on google maps using the google birds-eye view that looks isometric.

But before I begin I want to make sure this is possible in after effects. I know how to orientate a 2D object along a path in After Effects but I want a different effect similar to the animation in old RTS games. For example in the original Starcraft, the graphic for the character will change depending on the orientation.

I want to do the same with the cars in google maps. Every 5 degrees of rotation the car graphic will change to match the orientation of the road path. The below image gives an example of the many different car orientations I am preparing for this animation.

If you can imagine the car driving in a circle, every 5 degrees the car would need to change to match the orientation of the path. Is there an expression for this?
