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.

Have you ever wanted to get the inside story regarding how the Camaro was designed and engineered? Now you can by watching this vintage film Camaro, The Car of Today, produced by Jam Handy for Chevrolet. Famed writer/artist Milton Caniff, creator of the Steve Canyon adventure comic strip (which ran from 1947 to 1988), is the host.

The opening is comprised of quick edits between the Camaro’s features and young smiling faces, which progresses into young people dancing to period music to reinforce the fact that this is a young person’s car, or at least it’s for the young at heart. We then meet Caniff who provides a bit of history regarding Chevrolet innovations and where some of the ideas incorporated into the Camaro came from. Various vehicles, including a Nomad show car, Impala show car and the XP-700 are presented as examples of forward thinking.

Innovating one of the most iconic pony cars of all time.
