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.

Tech 101: How Hydraulic Brakes Work

Let's bounce back to the Jam Handy Chevrolet sales films for this week's Tech 101 video for a primer on hydraulic braking technology, uploaded to YouTube by USAutoIndustry. Sure, if you spend a little time on YouTube, you might find other, more in-depth videos that present much of the same information with less of the sales pitch (the ones from CrashForensics are pretty good), but these are a good reminder that - despite the advent of ABS, dual circuit systems and disc brakes since this video was released - the principles remain the same in pretty much every car on the road today.
