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.

A nice two-door Nova front and center. What people would pay today to get one like that. Especially one that hasn't been substantially molested.

Looks like only ONE American made vehicle… a VW “bug.”

No pickups. No SUVs, except perhaps a Suburban or two. No convertibles. A number of vans and station wagons.

I need to ask this question. What is the purpose of this Car Spotting? Is it an American thing? What is anyone actually looking for in the photos?

Just nostalgia or geezing as we say.
