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.

What exactly do Detroit’s automakers need to do to regain their big behemoth-sized dominance in the auto industry? Not tariffs, according to BARRY, who commented on this week’s Gale Halderman story with his own plan:

"All the U.S. auto industry has to do to recover domination of the world’s automobile business is to bring back the look of it’s winners from the ’50s-’70s cars and pickups with all the modern technology and a downsize to a modern proportions."

Maybe. Maybe not. Follow the links to a fun gallery imagining classic, exotic and everyday cars in miniaturized sizes.
