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.

Strother MacMinn’s LeMans Coupe to Make First Public Appearance in 60 Years

It's been nearly a year since contributor Dennis Kazmerowski started work on a unique project — one of the original LeMans Coupes built from Strother MacMinn's late-Fifties design. Since we last discussed it in March, he's made significant progress, enough to warrant displaying it this upcoming weekend. This marks the first time in more than 60 years that the public has had an opportunity to see any of MacMinn's LeMans Coupes.

Though Kazmerowski’s LeMans Coupe isn’t fully finished, the decision was made by EyesOn Design that the car and its history is too important to not share with others as early as possible, just as the original LeMans Coupe also made its public display in unfinished form. It'll appear twice over the weekend, starting on Saturday, when it will be the central focus of a symposium designed to honor Strother MacMinn and his car called, “The Influence of Strother MacMinn and the Influence of the LeMans Coupe.” The panel will consist of Peter Brock, Stu Reed, Steve Pasteiner and Dennis Kazmerowski; the car will be on display. All of this will happen at the “GM Design Dome” – what a perfect visual background for such an elegant design.

It will then appear on the EyesOn Design show field on Sunday.
