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.

“Because I said I can do it.” The Green Goblin Cab-Forward Custom Takes Shape

Chad Hiltz describes himself as "just some mojo" who lives up in Canning, Nova Scotia, a town of a few thousand people that seems to be no closer geographically or culturally than East Erewhon to the hot rod and custom Mecca of Southern California. But Chad has a plan to make a name for himself in the custom car scene, and he intends to do so with his latest build, a 1962 Chrysler Newport that he calls the Green Goblin.

Of course, in the tradition of radical customizers, there isn't much left of the Chrysler that he got for free last July, a four-door sedan that had been stripped for parts for use in the restoration of another car.

Cool, but not the car you want to be in during a head on collision.

True. Learning to parallel park this machine would certainly be a challenge, too.
