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.

Broncos in Colorado, Bentleys in Mississippi: the Most Commonly Listed Collector Cars in Each State

Posted July 04, 2017 9:00 AM by dstrohl

Plenty of stereotypes exist for each region of our vast country, and those include preconceptions about what sorts of cars prove most popular from state to state. But how often do they hold true? Fortunately, we have plenty of data to draw from after 60-plus years of facilitating sales of collector cars, so let’s do some deep diving into that data to see which are the most commonly listed cars in each state.

A few notes about the data first. To begin with, we drew from Hemmings classifieds records dating back to 2010, largely to keep the data fresh and to provide a statistically significant enough pool of records. We also limited our research to the 50 U.S. states and Washington, D.C., largely because the assorted U.S. territories (American Samoa, Puerto Rico, etc.) didn’t provide statistically significant numbers of listings and because our classified system is largely structured around American states.

Is it really a surprise that classic Corvettes and Mustangs dominate the garages of Americans all across this great country?
