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.

Certain scenarios automakers employed in their ads to shock, amaze or just briefly catch your attention don’t translate well to your collector car activities today. Truth be told, the manufacturers didn’t want you to replicate some of this stuff back then either, since costly warranty work or liability and safety issues may have resulted. After sinking a serious amount of cash and labor into their cruisers, even sitting on them or driving them around in the rain or snow may feel cringy nowadays for many owners.

First, don't race a plane.
