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.

From Ball Bearings to Big-Blocks: AACA Museum Celebrates 100 Years of Dodge

Perhaps it was their passion for all things mechanical that led the Dodge brothers to begin producing assemblies for the fledgling automotive industry, or perhaps it was growing up in a machine shop that specialized in marine engines. Whatever the cause, business-minded John Francis Dodge and technically-oriented Horace Elgin Dodge proved their mettle in the early days of the auto industry, rising from obscurity to prominence in a span of just 15 years, eventually becoming one of the largest automakers in America. Opening at the AACA Museum in Hershey, Pennsylvania, on September 26, a new temporary exhibit will help to commemorate 100 Years of Dodge.
