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.

Living Large, Living Low: The Mopar Lowliner Custom D200

Pathfinder Tags: D200 dodge SEMA 2019

How does Dodge follow up last year’s SEMA show special, a restomod Super Charger with a 1,000-horsepower crate engine? By going in a completely different direction. The truck you see here is called the Mopar Lowliner, and it started life as a 1968 Dodge D200 Camper Special. It’s different, but there’s a whole lot to like under the two-tone Candy Delmonico and Dairy Cream paint job. The Lowliner will make its public debut at the 2019 SEMA show, alongside an overland-ready Ram Rebel pickup truck, a custom Jeep Wrangler, and one more car we can’t tell you about until show time.

A sneak peak at the upcoming SEMA eye candy.

While I do understand that customs push styling limits, in this case the wheels went over the top. Even for a custom. I like everything else about this one, but those 22" wheels. Show a little rubber. It's O.K.

I can remember when *rubberbands* made excellent emergency o-ring's, but I never invisioned them becoming automotive *tyres*.
