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.

Hemmings Cinema – GM’s 50 Millionth, More from Da Yoopers, Beverly Hills Cop

Now showing, on Hemmings Daily:

GM really rolled out the red carpet - literally! - in November 1954 in Flint, when it came time to build its 50 millionth car. Fortunately, the company also made sure plenty of film cameras were rolling that day for not only the body drop but also the parade and all the related celebrations.

Liked last week's music video from Da Yoopers? How about another one, also borne from a northerner's winter experience, "My Car Won't Go."

Finally, to round out an all-Michigan Sunday Cinema, likely the first car chase scene from Detroit we've highlighted in this series: the one from the opening scenes of 1984's "Beverly Hills Cop."
