Hemmings Artist Feature: Kate Cook
Hemmings Motor News strives to enhance the experience of the collector-car enthusiast by publishing high-quality products. The publication was founded by Ernest Hemmings in Quincy, Illinois, in 1954. The first issue consisted of four pages, and 500 copies were sold at 50 cents per copy. Today, Hemmings has more than 219,000 subscribers, paying $31.95 per one-year, 12-issue subscription. They support the collector-car hobby by attending more than 100 car shows and related automotive events each year throughout the country.

Our biggest takeaway is that anything is possible when you have love and support around you.”
