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.

Before there were trucks, there were self-propelled tractors. And if you like one, it only makes sense to have a fascination with the other. It follows even if petroleum isn't the fuel. That's why we direct you to next weekend's Dover Steam Show at the Tuscarawas County Fairgrounds in Dover, Ohio.

This show, scheduled for August 20-22, is focused most closely on International Harvester equipment and the products of Russell Machinery, which built steam tractors in nearly Massillon, Ohio. Other to-sees include a pull for antique tractors and demonstrations of farming and milling techniques of the past. The fairgrounds is located off Interstate 77.

If Ohio is too far south, there is a large show put on every year near Rollag, a small town in western Minnesota. The event is called the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion, and it will be held September 3 - 6 this year. Here is the show's url http://www.rollag.com/index.php
