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 Prancing Horse’s Emotions in Motion: Fortuitous Close-Ups from Ferrari’s Official 70th Anniversary Party

[Editor’s Note: Matteo Giacon happened upon the official 70th anniversary party for Ferrari and wanted to share what he saw that day with us. As always, we’re happy to oblige.]

Once in a decade, there is a moment of the year when it is possible to see a literal herd of prancing horses gathering together to celebrate their birthplace’s birthday: just like in previous years ending with number 7, 2017 was another one of those magical moment when such an event was possible.

Yes, Ferrari now is 70 years old, and rarely it has looked so young, successful and dynamic like in these months: with record-setting production and record-breaking stock exchange successes, seems like there were more than the usual amount of reasons to indulge in celebrations and festivities.

Also the recent F1 drawbacks in Spa and Monza weren’t enough to dilute the thrilling pathos of so great an era for the Maranello realm – apparently.

The Italian supercar automaker celebrates its platinum anniversary.

I just think of the Inn of the Prancing Pony:
