American Manufacturing Brands Are Gone, but Not Forgotten

Many car manufacturers have gone out of business over the years. However, many are still around. These brands are known as defunct because they no longer exist or function. While many of these brands are still in existence, they are no longer being made. These manufacturing brands will be severable by many companies in order to cut costs or file for bankruptcy.

A few of the American manufacturing brands that have since gone out of business that were once popular include:

  • AMC was a popular choice for the Gremlin and Pacer as well as the Hornet.
  • Pontiac was a popular choice for the TransAm and Grand Prix.
  • Mercury was a popular choice for the Sable and Mariner.
  • Suzuki was a popular choice for Sidekick and Samurai.
  • Saab is a popular choice for the Turbo X 9-5 and 9000.
  • Plymouth is well-known for its Voyager, RoadRunner, and Neon.

These brands were popular once, but they have since been discontinued. You may still be able to see some of these American-made cars on the roads today.

Be Patriotic

You can find many American-made cars in your locality by simply looking out your window or driving through your neighborhood. Although it might not be obvious that these cars were made in America, some can only be found at museums.

Art cars, which are vehicles that have been painted with the American flag (including stars and stripes) and red, white, and blue colors, are a popular way to show patriotic pride. These types of cars are featured at festivals all over the globe, including parades for art cars.

What are you doing to show your patriotic spirit and pride?
