Old or new four-wheel-drive systems - which is better?
Hemmings Daily

Over the years, off-road capable SUVs and trucks have become complex machines. From electronic differentials and transfer cases to full-time all-wheel drive systems that are easy to operate but difficult to understand, these new 4x4s are supposed to be better in every way, but are they? On this episode of the Hemmings Hot Rod BBQ Podcast, Mike Musto sits down with Ryan Douthit and Nick Cappetto of Drivings Sports TV, two guys who make a living reviewing OEM off-roaders, to see if newer is actually better, or if the older analog systems from yesteryear are the way to go. So, grab a beverage ..read more

Ever lock eyes on someone and, though you’ve never met, you’re sure that you know them from somewhere? Celebrities have stories like this all the time—particularly when they’re mistaken for another celebrity. But it happens to us plebes in the weeds as well. Unsurprisingly, it happens with cars, too. And sometimes it all works out for the best. Sadly, little is currently known about this ’69 Camaro SS/RS convertible’s former life or owner(s); the only information that’s come to light is that it was built in the Norwood, Ohio, plant in December of ’68, was delivered in or near Memphis, Tennes ..read more

Is now the time to buy a Ford Bronco II before values skyrocket?
Hemmings Daily
by Mike McNessor

Ford’s Bronco II isn’t a darling of internet listicles just yet—it's not one of the “10 4x4s You Should Buy Right Now!”—but its popularity and its value seems to be growing. Prices for Bronco IIs haven’t skyrocketed, however there has been steady, significant appreciation over the last decade. Five years ago, for instance, the average value of a Bronco II was estimated at approximately $7,000, while today that estimate is nearly $14,000. The earliest examples of these compact SUVs are now well over 35 years old, but due to the sheer numbers produced, nice examples can still be found at affor ..read more

We get our hands on a 1987 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z... that needs a little help
Hemmings Daily

Welcome to IROC REHAB, the new series from Hemmings where we take an ailing 1987 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z into our Sibley Garage in Bennington, Vermont, and, with the help of some very special partners, give it a new lease on life. Thirty-five years ago, the Camaro IROC-Z was one of the most sought-after muscle cars on the road. They combined high style, power, and performance in a package that was difficult to match. However, as time and technology marched on, they became overshadowed by the latest and greatest. Now, in 2022, with new parts and technology available, Hemmings has decided to re ..read more

How the 1928-1931 Ford Model A started the entire auto restoration hobby
Hemmings Daily
by David Conwill

Like a lot of things, auto restoration has antecedents in the pre-World War II era, but is most strongly associated with the postwar period. Brass car enthusiasts were already preserving and fixing those machines by the late ‘30s, but the first thing that most would recognize as the hobby/industry of today really springs out of the post-war DIY movement centered on the 1928-1931 Ford Model A. Why the Model A? Well, a bunch of reasons… Background on the A as a new car Like the early Mustang, the Model A was a sensation when it first came out in late 1927, and Ford was hard pressed to keep up ..read more

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy and restore a 1956 Dodge La Femme repeats itself
Hemmings Daily
by Jim Black

During the Fifties, Chrysler’s marketing department observed that more women were taking an interest in automobiles. Aside from the type of car, their opinions on which color car to buy were becoming part of the decision-making process. As a result, Chrysler built two show cars in 1954, named Le Comte and La Comtesse. Each concept was developed from the division’s Newport hardtop body and given a clear plastic roof over the passenger compartment. While the Le Comte was designed using masculine colors, the La Comtesse was painted Dusty Rose and Pigeon Grey to convey femininity. Favorable resp ..read more

Maybe Santa will finally read my wishlist and bring me this 401-powered 1984 Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler

Hey, look, it's nearly December, which means it's time for my now-annual entreaty for somebody out there in reader land to leave a Scrambler for me to find underneath the Christmas tree. This 1984 Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler listed for sale on Hemmings.com will do nicely. It has some patina, some worn paint in the bed, and a dent here and there, which is perfectly fine by me. Those imperfections suggest that it's never seen enough rust or abuse to warrant a full restoration or repaint and that it's been a Southwestern truck for most or all of its existence. Plus, I like to actually use my vehicles ..read more

Even classics with factory air can like our 1970 Chevelle can benefit from a retrofit A/C system

Our loaded late-model daily drivers have us so accustomed to hitting the highway with their full complement of comfort and convenience options that we couldn't now imagine anything less, even in our classic muscle machines. Sure, cruise control, power steering, brakes, windows, and locks are all niceties that we all love to have, but topping the list of inarguable items is climate control. After all, our homes, offices, stores, restaurants, and nearly anywhere else we spend our time are all climate-controlled cocoons enabling us to go about our various tasks in comfort. Why should our classi ..read more
