The Return of the Hertz Mustang and a Street-Legal NASCAR Car: The Evening Rush

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.


According to Consumer Reports, the 2016 Toyota Prius is the most efficient hybrid ever, getting an impressive 52 mpg. That's average, folks.

Quick, run to your nearest Hertz dealer (or 17 select ones) and pick up a 2016 Mustang GT-H for the weekend. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Mustang, Hertz has decided to rent out these honking V8s once again. We just hope whoever rents these bad boys stays far, far away from any car meets.

Want to buy a bizarre 460hp street-legal NASCAR? This Frankenstein car is made up of a variety of different cars, using a Ford rear diff and a Ram clutch. Selling for a cool $69k, this may be worth investing in, if only for one gravel-spewing, back road afternoon.



If surfing and jet-skiing had a baby it would be the Radinn Wakejet. This electric powered board is capable of cruising at 29mph for an awesome 15 miles. Weighing in at only around 55 pounds, the lightweight Wakejet is portable and the perfect solution when there are no waves.


Machine Era has recently released a new pen called the No. 2, just like the name, the durable pen is extremely simplistic and the perfect tool for documenting your daily life. Made of a heavy-duty brass body, this 1.7oz pen has the perfect weighted feel to easily glide over your notebook.


In honor of the Indy 500 being this weekend, today’s beer pick takes us to TwoDEEP Brewing Company in Indianapolis, Indiana. Founded in 2010, this relatively young brewery has grown to 15-bbl system. Using cans, the brewery has been able to distribute their tasty suds throughout Indiana . If you find yourself in Indianapolis this weekend, we recommend you pick up some Lake IPA.
