  • Join us as Alan Naldrett explores the many automakers that ultimately failed but shaped the industry and designs putting wheels on the road today. Among more that two hundred auto companies that tried their luck in the Motor City, just three remain: Ford, General Motors and Chrysler. But many of those lost to history have colorful stories worth telling. For instance, J. J. Cole forgot to put brakes in his new auto, so on the first test run, he had to drive it in circles until it ran out of gas. Alan will share similar tales about auto companies such as Hudson, Studebaker, Packard, Nash, and more. See how many of these companies you remember.
