Noticed a Model A car carrier on the way back to my hotel across the street. Had no idea it was here, until then. Gas station has a lot of car and truck models, signs, license plates, etc. But, the best part is the small museum with several vintage trucks and cars. Best part: it's free.

My brother has been subscribing to the Hemmings Motor News for 40 plus. Years so I just had to stop. Great place for photographers, collectors and avid car enthusiasts. The antique and speciality car museum is another don't miss opportunity. Staff really helpful and friendly.

Sonoco station in front of the Hemmings Motor News HQ. Filled with everything a car guy or gal could want. Don't forget to walk around back for a free tour of their classic car museum. Definitely worth a stop.

It is not just a filling station! There is a charming antique car museum which is free (!) and even has a docent to tell you what to look for. Each car has an explanation. Even learned that a Buick century got its name from tots ability to hit 100 mph! There is also a store related to the Hemmings... More

Come on, this is Hemmings, what's not to like?! This was a dream that was years in the making, my first trip to Hemmings Motor News. Being in New York for a photo assignment and having a few days of free time on my hands, it was a no-brainer to drive three hours north and visit Bennington and the famous... More

We had no idea where Hemmings was. We just saw it as we drove by and turned around to come back. The store has all kinds of vintage automobile memorabilia which was fun. But the best part was the 23 vehicles they have in the garage, most of which are beautifully restored. There were also many other treasures, including old... More

We made this stop as a great way to get out and stretch our legs and to gas up. While it's a small car museum it is a great small car museum, with a souvenir shop with all the fixin's. Very pleasant folks, more the happy to talk to anyone about anything. Some great looking panel trucks, old cadi's and... More

A pristine collection of old panel trucks, car memorabilia, sleds and bicycles and just about anything associated with vintage cars. Great assortment of old license plates and model cars for sale for the collector in the store up front. Friendly guide!

I have read Hemming's Motor News for years, so I was surprised to discover them here in Bennington VT. I had stopped for lunch at the local Brewpub, but discovered Hemmings was less than a mile away. It is an interesting facility, actually a working filling station with a store attached selling a large selection of Hemming merchandise as well... More

Anyone even barely into cars needs to check out the museum. Not that many cars but what they have has a bio. Any they're not roped off. Talk nice and they might even open a hood. Or two. We were there the day of a Cruise-In and they expected 200 cars. The gift shop only had one item I couldn't... More
