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.

However, the BMW 507 that BMW Classic recently put on display at the BMW Museum in Munich has neither of the former and too many questions about the latter, in part due to its association with Elvis Aaron Presley.

Built in September 1957 with Rudge wheels, a removable hardtop, a black interior and Feather White paint, the 507 - chassis number 70079 - originally served as a demonstrator car at that year's Frankfurt Motor Show.
