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.

Once widely overlooked by buyers, Dodge Daytonas (and their Plymouth Superbird counterparts) have climbed in both popularity and value over the years, perhaps because of their relative rarity. Last Friday, a 1969 Dodge Daytona from the Wellborn Collection, reportedly described by restorer Roger Gibson as "the best example of a four-speed Hemi Daytona in existence," sold at auction in Kissimmee, Florida, for $900,000, setting a new benchmark for the model at auction.
