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.

Stuttgart Psychedelic: Janis Joplin’s Porsche 356C Heads to Auction

Janis Joplin may have expressed her desire for a Mer-ced-es Benz in song, but it was a 1965 Porsche 356C cabriolet that graced her driveway. Perhaps the most recognizable car in rock and roll history, the psychedelic-liveried convertible will be offered for sale by the Joplin family at the December 10 RM Sotheby's "Driven by Disruption" auction in New York City.

A classic artist's classic ride.
