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.

AMX GT Redux–-Popular Concept Car in the Midst of Re-Creation

Couldn't be that hard, many people think, to slam an AMX and a Gremlin together to re-create the long-lost 1968 AMX GT concept car, right? Except that nobody has ever whipped up such an automotive portmanteau, given it the requisite red white, and blue paint scheme, and rolled it out to see the light of day-until now.

We first got word of the project through reader Mikel Smithson, who chimed in following our recent rundown of all the cars carrying the name AMX. He spotted it at Bill Borneman's Blast From the Past shop--what has since been passed on to his son Dave and is now known as Borneman's Blast From the Past Restoration and Customs--in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, and put us in touch with the Bornemans.

Will this mash-up be an instant classic, or an automotive Frankenstein's monster?
