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.

1972 Volkswagen-Powered Minirig

Posted October 31, 2011 10:45 AM by dstrohl

This Volkswagen-powered minirig will appear at the McCormick Palm Spring auction next month. It appears to have been built from a kei-sized truck, though what exactly it started out as (we don't think VW built any kei trucks), we haven't a clue. From the auction description:

1972 VW powered Mini BIG-RIG custom replica. This custom flatbed pickup is a one-of-a-kind! It was professionally built to look like a diesel big-rig flatbed. 1,600cc VW four-cylinder engine with automatic transmission. VW go-kart included with a 5 hp Briggs & Stratton motor.
