Challenge has finished
There are many companies that have produced motorized vehicles, many of which are no longer with us. Brands such as Oldsmobile, Isetta, De Tomaso and others have made much loved machines, but they just haven't been able to stick around into the 21rst Century. This challenge is to show your best photo of a vehicle whose maker no longer exists. Please tell us who made the vehicle, when and where and a model name if you know it, in the notes when you post the photo. Any photo which doesn't have that information risks being disqualified.

Studebaker designs were way ahead of their time for Ameriacan cars. One of their last designs was the fiberglass Avanti which was too furturistic for the average car buyer. Sadly, Studebaker went out of business.
