Looking to fill up on auto news? We’ve clocked some miles traversing the Web for all things auto-related.
With the holidays upon us, a season of movies as well as good cheer, here is a recap of auto news from the big and small screens since the RoadLoans news tour took to the highways earlier this year.
“Fiat debuts Star Wars-themed 500e at LA Auto Show,” Motor Trend
Something for the ultimate Star Wars fan to show their colors on the road.
