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.

1966 Chevrolet Corvair Homecoming – A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Posted August 07, 2018 9:00 AM by dstrohl

The local Corvair guru, Duane Wentland of Oregon City, Oregon, came for a visit last week to get a fuller look at what I have, what’s needed, and a larger view of what needs to be done. Clearly I erred earlier in getting the car repainted before the fundamentals were done correctly, but that was when I wasn’t going to go all-in as I am now.

There’s a change in focus, though not in goal. Looking at the body as it sits, there’s little discernible progress. But down inside where the bits and pieces are, things are moving right along. I have a list of things to do, and more importantly a list of things not to do.

This classic car to do list is a mile long, but that doesn't show up on the odometer.

Is there any interest in converting Corvairs to electric? & possibly getting away from the swing axle?

I see quite a few classic VWs going electric now - suspension conversion possible, for the future.
