Interesting evolution of out automobiles. The first mention of a Ford is in 1893.
"produced for the general public"? I don't think so. The Quadricycle wasn't for sale. It was a few years before Ford started selling any cars.
I didn't see any mention of "America's First Car".
Many marks not included, even top 10 producers of their time. Charmers, Maxwell, dodge Brothers...
"Concept cars and submodels are not listed unless they are themselves notable."
Surely the quadricycle would be considered a "concept car", no?
Seems rather odd that Mercedes would have allowed Daimler to make licensed copies that would have competed directly against their import business of the real Mercedes cars.
Do any of the American Mercedes still exist? That would be interesting.
I have no idea who may have put that together? But it looks to be about the most convoluted and fractured mess I have ever seen on wikipedia! Hundreds of significant marques not mentioned at all. Skene? Who ever heard of a Skene? Even I have never heard of a Skene! Several makes they start out trying to list every model???? Packard, they began every model, then just stopped. I guess the other fifty years of Packard were not important enough. Okay, I didn't look all the way through. Then again, it looked like they were doing the same thing with Chevrolet. (Alright, that one might be excusable)
All in all, it looked like something put together by a ten-year-old.
It could be nice if properly done. But if they are going to list all models of even only well known makes, it would be a huge list.
Just me ranting. It has been a tough week. (Another of way too many)
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
I found this site somewhere and thought I would share .
It covers year by year pretty good I think .
