Cars in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies is the final installment of The Hobbit series, and undeniably one of the biggest movie releases of 2014. Writer and Director Peter Jackson takes us on an epic fantasy adventure filled with Elves, Dwarves, Orc armies and giant bats. But as automotive enthusiasts, we’re most anxious to see what kind of cars they drive down in Middle Earth. That’s why we’ve put together this completely legitimate article of best cars from the film.

Enter Paul Nadjarian. [keep reading]

About gas taxes (boston.com)

boston-dot-com-logoArticle by Bill Griffith for boston.com

Snowbirds and parents driving college students along the East Coast on a regular basis quickly realize that gas prices are lower in New Jersey, Virginia, and South Carolina. Conversely, it’s best to avoid filling up in Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. The reason? State taxes on gasoline vary considerably around the country. A tip of the cap goes to Sam Jackson and New York-based car-shopping website MojoMotors.com for compiling the countrywide data. One of the reasons for doing the study, notes Jackson, is the pending global warming tax that California is scheduled to implement on January 1, adding a predicted 15 cents per gallon.

Cool Used Car of the Future: Brute Double Cab

AEV, American Expedition Vehicles, premiered something crazy at SEMA in 2011. They called it the Brute Double Cab. It was a prototype back then, but now AEV is preparing the custom Wrangler/pickup/SUV for production. Built in tandem between AEV’s Missoula, Montana and Wixom, Michigan garages, expect to see some cruising around driving over mountains by the end if this year. If you’re into something like the Brute, hopefully you’re not in a rush since the waiting list is already quite long according to AEV. Until then, you’ll just have to gawk at the pictures or get your four-door Jeep outfitted with one of their existing Wrangler packages.
