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.

Prewar Motoring – Driving a 1935 La Salle Through D.C. Traffic

Posted July 29, 2015 9:00 AM by dstrohl

This past May, while driving up to New York City to visit my family, I made a detour to the Washington D.C. area to photograph this lovely 1935 La Salle Convertible Coupe for my forthcoming Cadillac book. Owned by Cadillac collector Randy Denchfield, it's one of two '35 La Salles in his collection, and without question one of the finest in the country.

After our photo shoot commenced, Randy took me for a nice drive in and around his pleasant Chevy Chase neighborhood. With the top down, we were enjoying the spring sunshine and reveling in the beauty of the La Salle's distinctive styling. Then Randy pulled over and told me to take the wheel and experience the La Salle motoring experience firsthand.

Does this ultimate classic get stuck in federal gridlock?
