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.

Triumph Tools

No restoration project is truly complete without a set of the factory-issued tools that originally came with the car. Through the years, the tools are usually the first item that gets misplaced and lost, along with the jack and the owner’s handbook. But with a full set of the original tools displayed alongside your car, it makes its restoration that much more absolute, and authentic.

Last Christmas, my brother David generously gave me a tool kit for my 1955 Triumph TR2. He found it in Australia, and although not complete, it’s only missing one or two tools. The vinyl-covered burlap is an authentic reproduction, but the tools that came with it are all Triumph originals.

Harken back to a time when tools of the DIY trade came with the vehicle.
