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.

Open Diff: What Do You Want to Know About the New Shelby GT500?

I’ll be driving the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 in a few weeks. It’s the most powerful Mustang ever, with 760 horsepower, and it comes from a long line of legendary predecessors. If there ever was a new car relevant to the Hemmings audience, this is it. So tell me: What information do you want me to bring back from my time in the driver’s seat and talking to the people behind the car?

This leads into a further point of discussion as well. Hemmings exists to celebrate the automotive hobby. Sometimes that hobby extends beyond classic cars. Whether it’s an all-encompassing interest in everything on four wheels or a practical need for a daily driver, our interests often wander into the modern era. So when an opportunity to cover other relevant new cars comes up, we’ll bring you a review here on the Hemmings website from time to time.

Submit your inquiries for Hemmings' test driver/web editor.

The Shelby name has become dated, time for an upgrade....

RIP...

I don't know, a genuine AC Cobra is coveted now more than ever.

Only because of it's rarity and racing heritage.... I think the car collections we see today will all be in museums 50 or 60 years from now, in the age of EV's...The collectible market is driven by peoples desires, and changes over time....how much interest do you see in electric sports cars today as compared to when you were a kid...? Things change...

New Shelby Tesla??
