Lost Car Companies of Detroit by Alan Naldrett

Among more than 200 auto companies that tried their luck in the Motor City, just 3 remain: Ford, General Motors and Chrysler. But these and many of those lost to history have colorful stories worth telling.

Author Alan Naldrett explores the stories of automakers who succeeded and those who ultimately failed but shaped the industry and designs putting wheels on the road today.
