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.

Looks like a VW Passat and Ford Anglia in the foreground.

<...Ford Anglia...> agreed.

What it is doing there such a long way from its Dagenham birthplace is a real mystery.

It's probably the reason why the photo was taken.

The photographer was documenting the two unusual motor cars in a sea of USA models.
