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.

Those of us in the car hobby may not agree on everything, but one thing typically binds us together: “the list.” We all have “the list,” one that records cars, trucks, and bikes we’d like to own while we’re still healthy enough to enjoy them, in the manner that the engineers and designers intended.

The list may be mental or physical, written down on paper or recorded as a series of 0s and 1s in the digital realm, but the vehicles on it change as one ages. Sometimes, it’s practicality that intervenes: As enjoyable as an air-cooled Porsche 911 might be, it isn’t a great choice for hauling kids, pets, or oversize cargo. That sixth-generation Ford F250 Ranger may have been a dream ride in one’s college days, but its incessant thirst for gasoline and rough ride will likely limit its weekend-driver appeal, at least when other members of the household are involved.

OK. Another chance to salivate about dream cars. And go...
