    Discontinued Car brands

    Saw this on the "comcast" front page:

    http://www.comcast.net/slideshow/fin...scontinuedcars

    First one is a Studebaker

    That's not a Studebaker!
    That's a Rockne!!! 1933 to be precise. The plate says 1932 but the fenders are 1933. The headlights don't look correct. And it's a convertible sedan. NOT the only one known to exist![:0] We need more information on that red car! Anyone know the media folks at Comcast? (Edited with more recent info three posts down)
    And, I don't think the Neon will ever be considered one of Plymouth's most famous models!

    I don't think the photo was taken in the U.S.

    Look at the license plate on the car on the right. Also the other cars are not types normally seen here.
    South America perhaps?

    The passenger car line is; not the trucks.

    I think I read one time that there were more than 3500 different American cars built since the beginning days of the industry.
