Celebrating 70 Years of Volvo’s PV444


 Photography by the author, Simon Hamelius, and courtesy Volvo Cars The car that introduced Americans to Volvo – and the one that many joked looked like a 1940s Ford run through the dryer – is soon to celebrate its 70th birthday: the PV444.

Hemmings Find of the Day – 1976 Jaguar XJ Sedan


I can hear the guys over at Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car choking on their tea and crumpets as they read this, but I’m a fan of ye olde classic small block Chevrolet into the XJ6/XJ12 swap — as seen in the American hot rod books of the 1970s.

How does the 1970 Dodge Hemi Challenger stack up against its modern equivalents?

From our museum to the beach: Hemmings prepares vehicles for the third-annual Race of Gentlemen


The Hemmings Motor News 1934 Ford one-ton wrecker. Although Hemmings Motor News will not have a vehicle competing in this year’s third-annual Race of Gentlemen, we are one of the corporate sponsors and will be attending the event with a few period-correct vehicles normally seen in our auto museum at Hemmings Motor News headquarters in Bennington, Vermont.

The Den Hartogh Ford Museum in the Netherlands might hold the Guinness world record for the largest private collection of Fords in the world, but it has struggled to bring younger visitors through its doors in recent years, something museum officials will attempt to counteract by thinning out nearly a quarter of the museum’s collection.

Custom Chevrolets find a home in VCCA

Toronto, Ontario, 1970


As we did with Ellis Wiley’s circa 1966 photos from Toronto, let’s dive into the City of Toronto Archives for another group of Wiley photos, this time from 1970, again showing various locations around the city: Queen Street above and below, then Yonge at Cumberland, and finally Bloor and St.

Hemmings Find of the Day – 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS


It’s hard to believe that the ’64 Impala hit the half-century mark in 2014, a car more significant perhaps for what it ushered out than what it introduced.

Ordered new by racer Tony DeLorenzo, 1969 Corvette L88 convertible heads to auction

Driving Impression: 1975 Trabant 601S


1975 Trabant 601S; the symbolic laughingstock of a collapsed communist regime is more clever than you might think.

Denver, Colorado, 1948


Let’s take on a bit of a challenge today, shall we? Normally, we try to focus on the 1950s and 1960s for our carspotting photos, figuring that there’s much more diversity of automobiles from that period, but this photo of Broadway looking south from First in Denver – dated September 9, 1948 – from the Denver Public Library’s digital collections seems to have variety in spades and plenty of clear details to help identify the vehicles.

Hemmings Find of the Day – 1951 Bristol 401


After helping the Allies win World War II, the U.K.’s Bristol Aeroplane Company decided to branch out into the production of automobiles.

All photos courtesy George Pope. Fifty years ago, if you wanted to take a hulking Model AA school bus to the Model A Ford Club of America’s annual convention halfway across the country, there was really only one way to do so – drive it there.

Swap Meet Treasure Hunting


Photography by the author. Once I got my first car in the mid-1980s, I soon realized any vehicle that was 20 years old needed parts regularly, so my car show activities over the ensuing years would have to also include attending swap meets to feed my projects and even my daily driver if need be.

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, 1960s


At first glance, the above photo, which we came across on the H.A.M.B., looks like it could have been taken in California, epicenter of the rod and custom scene in the 1960s, and jampacked with strip malls like we see in the background.
