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.

The 15 Millionth Car That Changed the World: How the Last Ford Model T Marked the Passing of an Era

Well into the second century of the age of the automobile, we've become almost inured to various anniversary and other milestone celebrations by carmakers as yet another way to boast of their longevity and supremacy or as yet another way to try to upmarket a car that's lagging in sales. So when the Historic Vehicle Association added the 15 millionth Ford Model T to the National Historic Vehicle Register in April 2018, one could almost gloss over the car, itself rather unremarkable and plain aside from the lettering on either side identifying it.

Turns out the last Model T isn't the last at all.
