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.

For better or worse, that makes us qualified to offer a few tips on things that are done right, and conversely, things that have definite room for improvement.

We also receive a significant number of complaints (though to be honest, nowhere near the number fielded by our customer service team) from prospective buyers, who aren’t hearing back from sellers, contacted via email, in a timely manner. Though we’ve covered most of this ground in the past, it never hurts to publish a refresher course on what to do, and what to avoid, when submitting an online ad with us.
