Jacksonville.com, the website of The Florida Times-Union has an interesting app for car lovers, Pod Rods. The app offers the latest automotive news, information on First Coast car events, plus photos, videos and podcasts from the automotive industry.

The Times-Union isn't new to the Windows Phone arena, having launched four apps for the Windows Mobile platform; the Jacksonville.com App, Ultimate Jaguars, the University of Florida Gators, and High School Sports.

The app also offers traffic and road construction updates to keep you informed as you travel from car show to car show. In touching base with the developers they felt that Pod Rods would be a good way to gauge interest for the Windows Phone 7 format and promote local car events.

Pod Rods is a free application and you can find it here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.
