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.

There's only one picture - anywhere in the world, as far as I've been able to determine - and no information associated with it, so it's only the front end which makes me (OK, Dan) think it's a '37 Chevy.

Has anyone ever seen it before…and was it scrapped for the war, or is it stuck in some X-Files warehouse to this day?
