Throughout the hundred-plus years that cars have been in existence, there have been many brands and styles of cars that have come and gone,
News 4 This Morning is looking at the car brands and models that are no longer being made. We start with a brand that lasted more than a hundred years--the Oldsmobile.
Production of Oldsmobile vehicles began in the late 19th century, And, Ford Motor Company bought Oldsmobile in 19-08. Throughout the decades, the company became known for a variety of vehicles, like the Super 88.
In more modern years, the company began to decline, even as it made many models including the Alero, Cutlass and Intrigue. A decline in sales led to the end of what had been one of the most enduring automobile brands in history, with production ending in 2004.
Another car brand associated with luxury is Cadillac, but not all of its vehicles have been received well, including the Cimarron, which you see here. Introduced with a model for the 19-82 car year, it lasted seven years. The four door sedan was smaller than most other Cadillac’s, which led to poor sales of the car.
Sales of the Cimarron in its first year were barely over 25-thousand, and some criticized its four-cylinder engine. V-6 models were later made available, and became standard, but not in time as the brand were finally discontinued in 19-88, a year where only just over six thousand of the cars were made.
Stay tuned, because tomorrow, we'll be featuring two more brands and models of cars that are no longer being produced,
