An individual can list his car for sale on the Hemmings website and in the Hemmings print publication by placing a classified advertisement on the official website, according to Hemmings. As of 2015, advertisements can also be placed in the print publication by calling the company.
"Hemmings Motor News" was founded by Earnest Hemmings in 1954 and purchased by Terry Ehrich in the 1960s, according to Hemmings. Enrich moved the publication to Vermont and added a full-color classified section to the magazine in 1989. In 1998, Hemmings launched its official website, which, as of 2015, has hosted over 30,000 classified car advertisements by individuals.
After Ehrich's death in 2002, the Hemmings publication company was purchased by American City Business Journals, states Hemmings. As of 2015, the company maintains an automobile-related blog on its official website and publishes three magazines in addition to "Hemmings Motor News." Personal classifieds appear only in the latter publication.
Bennington, Vt., is home to the Hemmings world headquarters, according to Hemmings. The complex employs over 100 people and houses a display of over 25 classic vehicles. The headquarters also hosts a replica of a full-service Sunoco station and a store for car enthusiasts. In addition to its magazines, Hemmings prints several calendars each year, including one dedicated to abandoned vehicles.
