    A book I have published in 1931 says there was more then 3500 individual car companies before 1930, and that doesn't even count all the Canadian ones and imported ones that were also available in the US. Wild!

    Oh man, on the far right is a black 1959 German Ford Taunus 12M, I have 2 of them and need parts so bad!

    The red COE above the burn Volvo is a Hanomaug, too cool!

    There are some GREAT one-liners in that movie! And great dialgue in general! One of my favorites, when the barn is set on fire:

    "We's in a tight spot!
    We's in a TIGHT spot!" :eek:

    Another:

    "Wait. You sold yoer soul to the devil?"

    "Well . . . I wusn't USIN' it!" :rolleyes:

    There were many companies that only built ONE car or even none and went out of business. Let alone the ones that just built a handfull. Almost every major city had a car Co.

    Hey, darn good point. Early on, the Great Lakes region (and Detroit in particular) were by no means the HUB of the auto industry. Cars and trucks were turned out in the majority of the states, at one point or another. Off hand, Cleveland, Buffalo, St. Louis, Chicago and several Indiana cities vied for the top-producer spot.

    I was at school in the late 40's and 50's there were several kids from one parent families and orphanages because one or both parents had been killed either fighting or by bombing. Lots of kids were moved from the big citys to smaller safer ones like the one Ilive in

    I never considered that a motorcycle with a sidecar is considered a 'personel carrier'...but in war times, anything goes!
