The End Of Hemmings Sport & Exotic Car Magazine

My friend Gary Hamilton gave me some warning this morning.  And this afternoon the letter arrived that confirmed what Gary had advised me.  Hemmings Sport & Exotic Car magazine has passed into magazine afterlife.  The death notice is below.

Letter From Hemmings About The Demise Of Sport & Exotic Car Magazine

I have been a subscriber to this magazine for 5 or 6 years.  It has always been a good read, but it seems that magazines are having a hard time of it.

Hemmings are transferring my remaining subscription over to Hemmings Classic Car magazine.  I am only vaguely familiar with that magazine, so I’ll wait and take a look at the issues that get forwarded to me.  Whether or not I sign up for that magazine is an open question.

The final cover of the Sport & Exotic Car magazine that arrived today is shown below.  The topics noted on the cover are typical topics that were covered by this magazine.  The other thing that I found interesting about this magazine is that as Hemmings is based in nearby Vermont, many of the stories had local relevance.

I will miss this magazine and the monthly sit down to read about these interesting, yet affordable cars.

    We need it back..a perfect companion to Classic Car..

    Why wasn’t offering a Digital subscription an option? That would make the most sense to me. The publication will be sorely missed.

  3. David Knickrehm says:

    My wife called it my “car porn”. All bets were off the day it arrived.
    If it ever starts up again I will sign right up.

  4. Jeff Kiefer says:

    Very sad. I couldn’t figure out why I was receiving Classic Car Mag. I wish there was a digital version offered as I would have subscribed.

  5. Chris Hehr says:

    It was easily my favorite, I learned quite a bit from it.
    Cover to cover, always enjoyable.

  6. Russell Last says:

    I enjoyed HSEC tremendously and hope that the good people of Hemmings might tilt the Classic Car magazine a bit to keep us foreign car devotees happy, too.
