    They seem [u]Obsessed</u> with independents and orphans.
    Not that I'm complaining, but there has been a lot of articles and columns on Ranblers (Nash, Hudson, AMC, etc.) amd Studebakers. I've subscribed since the first issue and if I were a huge fan of the "big 3", I'd probably feel a bit slighted.

      Fact is, the "independents and orphans" made interesting, unusual cars with features and designs that the big boyz didn't have. (You notice even thought the convertible issue had a F*rd on the cover, it was a '58! Not your "mainstream" Sunliner.)

      I love those guys!

        Besides, there are lots of magazines that focus only on major brands, like Corvette Quarterly, or any number of magzines with "Chevy" in the title. Collectible Automobile does a very balanced job covering different makes and years. Hemmings is just one magazine and if Hemmings likes the orphan makes, more power to them.
