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.

The dialogue between Humphrey Bogart (as Rick) and Ingrid Bergman (as Ilsa) at the end of the film classic Casablanca is among the most heart-wrenching (and best known) in all of Hollywood cinema. When Rick delivers his "We'll always have Paris" lines at the end of the film, Ilsa stands in front of the 1940 Buick phaeton that carried them to the airport. Soon, this famous movie car will cross the auction block in Bonhams's upcoming "What Dreams Are Made Of" sale.

The Buick is said to have approximately 42,000 miles on the odometer, and was the recipient of an early 1990s mechanical restoration. Read the rest on Hemmings Daily.

Let the pool begin! I'll guess US$ 1,500,000.

(I said guess, not bid...)
