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.

Everett Miller and constructed by Los Angeles's Advance Body Company (also referred to as Advance Auto Body Works). The interior looks rather well finished for a one-off, though the front-wheel-drive, rear-steer chassis concept seems a little half-baked. The story, by Richard Kelley, appeared in SIA #107, October 1988.

I dunno about that... I really didn't notice the lady... I must be getting older...

I thought I would grow up to be a dirty old man.... I will have to keep trying I guess.

now a nurse's uniform might have caught my attention

I have long been of the opinion that three-wheelers should be build with the two wheels in front- better stability. In this case, however, I have to object to the enclosure...I prefer a more open concept.
