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.

A 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Comes Home

Posted June 01, 2015 11:00 AM by dstrohl

Editor's note: this story comes to us from Hemmings reader Jason Kern.

In 1969, as my dad, Mike Kern, was finishing up his tour in Vietnam, he ordered a 1969 RS/SS Camaro from the local dealership in his hometown of Olney, Illinois. He ordered the car the way he wanted it, with the 300-hp 350 V-8, a four-speed manual transmission, no power steering, no spoilers, a color matched Endura front bumper and a Positraction rear end with 3.55 gears. The car was waiting for him when he got home.

A car reunited with its family, on Hemmings.
