All depends on how you look at it. Electrons have a negative charge, and move toward a positive charge. However you can also look at it as positive holes (missing electrons) moving from positive to negative. It is really not important unless you are into theoretical stuff. There is current moving through a wire and it produces an electric/magnetic field around it. For most applications in older cars it doesn't make any difference which direction the current is flowing as long as it is consistent to the application.
