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.

Someone Made a Mercedes-Benz E320 Pickup, and It's Pretty Neat

This 2000 Mercedes-Benz E320 pickup for sale on Hemmings.com almost definitely looks like a funerary flower car, but that's not the case. According to the seller, it was used as a promotional vehicle for an Atlanta-area Mercedes-Benz dealership. That makes it one of the greatest parts trucks we can imagine.

And while we're doing some creative brainstorming, think of the possibilities a luxury four-door with a pickup bed brings. You can... well, you can basically do all the stuff you'd do with any other four-door pickup, except with easier access to the bed and a lower max payload. I mean, it hauls stuff, and you don't have to open a hatch or worry about staining the carpet in the cargo hold - pretty standard truck things.

But look at the front: It's not just a truck, it's a Mercedes-Benz E320. That is a novelty that, based on how long I keep staring at the pictures, never goes away. Plus, it has a mere 22,900 miles on the odometer according to the classified ad. It's not just a Mercedes-Benz converted into a pickup, it's almost new.
