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.

Blizzard? S’no Matter: We’ll Take the Snow Plane

Posted January 12, 2015 10:15 AM by dstrohl

Sometimes it takes more than a bag of sand and snow tires to get around in the wintertime. Sometimes you need a little more ingenuity and a cache of old auto and airplane parts, which North Dakotan Roy Berg had plenty of in the late 1940s and early 1950s, and which he used to create a series of homebuilt snow planes.

After a recent comment from reader Rudy Radke mentioning Berg's snow planes, we followed up, looking for more photos and info. See what Hemmings dug up about these homemade plane/snowmobile hybrids.

If I knew how to weld, I'd do stuff like this, too. Oh, and not so lazy...that's probably an important factor.
