The Evening Rush for Feb. 26, 2016

The Evening Rush is your daily roundup of auto, gear, and lifestyle news, all in one place. Less time searching, more time driving. Motor on.


Honda plans to show a hatchback version of the Civic at Geneva Auto Show next week. Spy shots of the hatchback indicate a center mounted exhaust, so we have high hopes that a Si or R version is in the works.

Last week Hennessey Performance came out with a 1,032hp Challenger and now they are giving it a friend. Hennessey has announced that they will be offering their HPE1000 package for the Dodge Charger. The Charger will have the exact same engine setup as the Challenger, a twin-turbocharged V8. Is this the first 1,000+ horsepower standardized tuning package for a sedan? We sure can’t think of anything else.

Sad news for our friends over in Australia. GM has decided that Holden will cease production by the end of 2017. Yes, that means no more rear wheel drive V8 sedans! Sorry blokes.



Turn your kitchen into a pizzeria with the Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven. The compact design allows heat to evenly disperse around the pizza for the perfect slice each time. Reaching 600 degrees, the Pizzeria Pronto will definitely improve your lazy night at home.

Looking for a new weekend getaway back? Check out Patagonia’s new Headway Duffel Bag 40L. This ultra-durable, water resistant bag is the perfect companion for that last minute trip.


Today’s beer pick takes us to Brandon, Vermont and Foley Brothers Brewing. Nestled in Rutland County, this small craft brewery appears to have one mission, make tasty suds! Although we haven’t confirmed this mission statement, beers like Pieces of Eight Imperial IPA speak for themselves. Keep up the good work guys!

REI outlets are having some pretty heavy sales. With discounts up to 87% we suggest you head over to their website and stock up for your spring adventures.
