Hemmings Motor News Blog Blog

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.

One Woman’s Solo Journey Around the World in a 1930 Hudson

Posted August 31, 2015 2:00 PM by dstrohl

While most 77-year old women are relaxing at home and ordering jewelry from QVC, Heidi Hetzer is circumnavigating the entire world in her 1930 Hudson - solo. Yes, she's driving around the world in a car that was built 85 years ago. Now that's chutzpah.

Heidi is a popular celebrity back in her home town of Berlin, Germany, where through the years she was a car dealer and rallye driver; she collects classic cars, too. Oh, and she drives them around the world as well.

Meet this real-life superwoman on Hemmings.

Good for her! To quote Hunter S. Thompson:

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"
