Okay, one of my favorite things is old cars. I have an '84 Datsun/Nissan 300ZX (the last year they put a Datsun badge on the back too!) and I love it to death. Poor girl is finally running good again. But Nissan/Datsun/whatever is still with us.
So what is your favorite automaker that is no longer around? You needn't own said car, but if you could, what would it be?
My favorite would be Duesenberg, but that no longer counts They've come back! The new Duesenberg Torpedo is due out sometime next year so they are defunct no more.
So the runner up is going to have to AMC (I know this is a far far cry from Duesenberg) But I f-ing LOVE the Hornet. The 1977 AMX is just a cool looking car. Granted they came out with some shit cars, but I also love the Javelin.
My favorite defunct motorcycle maker would have to be BSA (british southern arms) who still have a proxy in India but its a shell of what it used to be...
