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.

Call us suckers for factory stripped-down muscle cars, if you want. And Hemis. And four-speeds. And numbers-matching models. And rare combinations. And spectacular restorations to factory-correct standards. Add it all up, as was the case with Joe Sokola's 1968 Dodge Super Bee, and you get our Best in Show winner for Musclepalooza XXII.

What's more in this Mopar?

I don't like them, they are scary and the front wheels won't stay on the ground for goodness sakes!

That's not a bug, that's a feature.
