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.

Driving to Be the Best: Chrysler’s 1987 Lineup on High-Quality VHS

Posted December 02, 2019 9:00 AM by dstrohl

No matter how much we may like cars, do any of us really enjoy going to a dealership? Haggling, getting sucked into the four-square method, politely chuckling at the dealer’s bad jokes, all when we really just want to look at the cars, compare their specs, get under the hood, and be a car geek.

Today, we’ve got the Internet for all that research. In 1987, car shoppers didn’t. But they — or, at least, some of them — did have VHS players, so Chrysler decided to get all fancy and use that epitome of Eighties tech to run down its entire Chrysler and Plymouth lineup. No clue why they didn’t include Dodge.

Everything you wanted to know about Chrysler's and Plymouth's 1987 model lineup - all on compact tape cassette (uploaded to YouTube, of course).
