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.

Watch This: A Zen Moment with a Deuce

Sometimes, we just want to lay our eyes and rest our tormented souls on a simple car walk-around video. Just fire it up, lift the hood, let 'er idle and walk the camera around it and let us enjoy. We'll turn off the ringer, put the email dinger on mute and turn up the volume, just to keep ourselves centered and force us to remember what's important in life.

If the car up for review is a drag car, that's awesome. If that drag car is an unexpected jewel, even better. And if that jewel is a rare model of a car that's oft-times forgotten or maligned, well, now you're pulling at our blackest, thinnest, hardest-to-find heart strings.

And so it was when we stumbled across this walkaround video of a righteous '78 Ford Mustang King-Cobra-turned-dragster. Not only do we love the paint, but this T-topped and tubbed 'lil homewrecker on a pair of deep-dish Drag Lites would be the stuff every traffic infraction we'd commit for the next few years is made of.

Would you drive this seeming lowliest of Mustangs? Do you know where one is? Truth be told, we'd never give one of these a second look in years past, but that's our own shortcoming. We're a King Cobra believer, now....
