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 Best of Italy and Germany (and Britain and France and…) at This Year’s Trentino and Gardasee Klassik Shows

Posted November 27, 2017 11:00 AM by dstrohl

And now, are you ready for something completely different?

Well, almost completely different, that is.

And while Monty Python’s most famous tagline may seem a bit far-fetched here, surely what I am about to describe is a distinct yet tantalizing event, or to be precise two of them, coupling the best Italy and Germany could possibly offer to car lovers.

In fact, following the Settimana Motoristica Bresciana, with its brass cars, and the Gran Premio Nuvolari, with its vibrant sportscars and sizzling GTs, I also took a look at two further occasions to see a superb group of fascinating veterans and classics traveling up and down some of the most exciting Italian roads. Only this time, there was a distinct Teutonic flavor exuding from those rolling displays, and this was caused by the chosen locations, by the organization, and, last but not least, by the peculiar automobiles that added a priceless cultural value.

A car-lover's vacation is not complete without stops at regional auto shows.
