the last successful car manufacturer to start from scratch in the USA

Lincoln, 1920

Wow. All those since aren't still in business, or, haven't been profitably successful, according to Aaron Robinson, Car and Driver, Jan 2016 issue

Jeep and Chrysler went bankrupt too many times to call them successful, Checker is dead, Saturn was a falling star, briefly brilliant and then flickered out. AMC went bust. International Harvester sorta hung in there a little while, and most of the semi truck makers sold out or merged. Their nameplates remain, but they have no independent identity and soul.

    1. I don't think so... they are govt subsidized, 435 million dollars. That's not success, that's welfare
