Hemmings Motor News is a monthly magazine catering to traders and collectors of antique, classic, and exotic sports cars. It is the largest and oldest publication of its type in the United States, with sales of 215,000 copies per month, and is best known for its large classified advertising sections. The magazine counts as subscribers and advertisers practically every notable seller and collector of classic cars, including Jay Leno and his Big Dog Garage, and most collector car clubs are included in its directory. The magazine was started by Ernest Hemmings in Quincy, Illinois, in 1954, then purchased by Terry Ehrich, who moved the operation to Bennington, Vermont in the late 1960s. Ehrich published the magazine until his death in 2002. The company was then acquired by American City Business Journals. Hemmings currently has 100 employees at its Bennington headquarters.
Due to the increasing bulk of the Motor News magazine, Hemmings split sections of Motor News off into several specialty publications, including Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car (successor to the earlier Special Interest Autos magazine) , and Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car. Hemmings also sells a large line of calendars, clothing, signs, and other items relating to automobile collecting and memorabilia.
I found this gas station in Bennington, Vermont and it turned out to be the home of the company!
