Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

The $5,000 Challenge, You Don’t See That Every Day Edition, Part Three

Posted May 10, 2017 9:00 AM by dstrohl

The biggest complaint we hear about new cars from mainstream manufacturers these days is this: Thanks to current crash-testing and fuel economy regulations, they all look the same. Perhaps what Hemmings readers are really objecting to is conformity, since the second-most common complaint is that all of today’s cars are silver, gray, or black.

Every single vehicle in this $5,000 Challenge is guaranteed to stand out in a crowd, and there isn’t a silver one in the bunch. All, we suppose, are acquired tastes, and some will require a bit of effort (and sums of cash) to turn into daily or weekend drivers. Does the end justify the means (or the elbow grease)? That’s for you to decide.

Custom mods, chop jobs, outlawed ATVs and more in this edition of the $5,000 challenge.
