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.

Going Anti-Postal

Posted September 24, 2013 8:00 AM by dstrohl

Postal employees have had a number of motorized vehicles at their disposal over the decades, but perhaps none so cartoonish as the mid-1950s Fageols. Unlike today's stark and angular Grummans, the Fageols looked like overinflated balloons on four wheels, and reader Joan Schoenly appears to have run with that idea with her lemon-lime ex-postal van.

"I dubbed her 'Pure Sunshine on Wheels' or 'Silly Sally Sunshine,'" she wrote. "I couldn't resist buying her even though I did not know exactly what I was going to do with her. I went back and forth between selling my artwork out of her or selling lemonade and I decided on the lemonade."

Some people just can't think out of the box.
