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.

When History is So Much More Awesome Than the Memory of It

Like, it really ties the room together, man

Now, here’s something you don’t see every day: David Bowie and Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia in a side-piped and black panthered, hood-scooped Pontiac. But seriously, folks…

What’s amazing about this – we’re gonna guess wedding-day – photo isn’t so much the white tux or the painted drums or the panther leaping through the field of Acapulco Gold or the modified seaweed flames or even that oh-so-Seventies stance with the short sidewall and the gaping wheel well, but the sum of the parts.

Was this your wedding day ride? Or, do you wish it was?

I’m just glad the 70’s fashion history is .... history.

"Was this your wedding day ride? Or, do you wish it was?"

'99 black on black Z28 convertible, with tan leather interior, was mine.

Sadly, the car is long gone. The ex, not so much :-P
