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.

Tiger: So, we meet again Mr. Bond.

Photographer: We need another dry pair of slacks brought up to the studio!

Photographer: Go ahead and stare him down, Jim. Let him know who’s boss.

Photographer: Just a little closer, please. Tiger: Stop eye-ballin’ me, human.

Human: NNNiiiccceee kitty.

Human: Would you happen know where the oil dipstick is?

Human: I think I've found your rough idling problem, Bill.

Tiger: Really? Aren’t you even wondering where the engine went?

Tiger: Horse-power…yeah, right…horse-power.

Tiger: You mean, I could’ve had a V-8! Tiger: Keep it together human, this is a paying gig.

Tiger: You seemed to have caught me in a compromising position.

Tiger: Ahh, breakfast is served.

Tiger: A little skinny, but I guess you’ll do.

Tiger: I appreciate you dressing for my dinner.

Tiger: Gray flannel tends to give me heartburn.

Tiger: Mechanic? What mechanic?

Now that you’ve read my worst, let's see your best captions for this ad's photo.
