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.

Barn-Find 1929 Packard Emerges After 50 Years, Wins Best in Show its First Time Out

Paul Tacy wasn't even sure he had the right place. The Adirondacks are full of long-forgotten barns, garages, and other structures, and nothing on the outside of this particular white ramshackle shed gave a clue as to what lay within. A no-trespassing sign tacked to the front looked like it had weathered there since at least before the Reagan administration, leaves and pine needles had carpeted the roof, and a good six inches of dirt and detritus blocked the doors. Still, Paul wedged one of the doors open a little bit, reached his hand and a camera inside, and took perhaps the first photo in more than 50 years of the 1929 Packard Model 633 Runabout that would become his and that would, with a little work, go on to win a best in show award on its first outing.

Absolutely amazing! I love that the tyres were even intact.
