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.

Lincoln’s Continental Concept: A Hit, or a Swing and a Miss?

Though we enjoy a fair amount of editorial latitude with the Hemmings Daily, one unwritten rule of thumb is this: thou shalt not cover new cars very often. I'll admit to being on the fence about writing up Lincoln's latest Continental concept, but the return of a storied model, in my eyes, is universally newsworthy. Readers agreed, and as George Allegrezza pointed out, "210 comments - I'd say the article hit a nerve, Kurt."

Indeed it did, but perhaps more precisely, the Lincoln Continental concept was what hit a nerve. Big wheels (which, incidentally, will never see the light of day on a production car) aside, the concept may be the most polarizing in recent history, with a comparable number of readers falling into the respective "hit" and "miss" categories.

How do you feel about storied models rebooted as new concepts?
