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.

Not the best resolution, but here's my guess.

First row l-r, Audi, Chrysler, Pontiac, Cadillac Coupe DeVille, Chevy Biscayne, Chrysler wagon, Maverick, Plymouth Cricket, Dodge Aspen, Plymouth Duster, CJ5, Dodge 150 turck.

Far left, looks like a Mustang

Next row, Dodge wagon, some 60's car and another Mustang

Next row, Chevy Impala

Next row, Mercury XR7 or big body Mustang

Last row, Chevy Impala.

Certainly nothing noteworthy in either photo. Nothing I'd want to own today.
