Hemmings Motor News Blog Blog

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.

Short Hood, Looooooong Deck: Extreme Cab-Forward Imaginings

Posted December 30, 2013 9:00 AM by dstrohl
Pathfinder Tags: Concept oversized prototype

Much like the COE van photochop renderings we came across earlier this year, these two Deora-like car-based COEs popped up without an artist's signature attached to them and have made the rounds over the last couple of weeks. Similar to the Caprice that HarborIndiana 'chopped up recently, both simply shifted the greenhouse as far forward as possible, negating the hood but leaving the grille and headlamps roughly intact, and in the process making room for an eight-foot or longer pickup bed.

Enjoy the rest of this series on Hemmings.
