    first cars
    Holguinisburg- 1769 The history of the car begins in 1769, with the invention of steam engined cars capable of moving humans from one place to another.In 1806, the first cars powered by an internal combustion engine running on gas, which led to the introduction in 1885 of the modern gasoline- or petrol-fueled internal combustion engine. The year 1886 is regarded the year of birth of the modern automobile - with the Benz Patent-Motorwagen, by German inventor Carl

    . Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot showed his fardier à vapeur ("steam dray"), an experimental steam-driven tractor, in 1770 and 1771. As Cugnot's design proved to be impractical, his invention was not d centre of innovation moved to Great Britain. By 1784, William Murdoch built a working model of a steam carriage in Redruth,

    1801 Richard Trevithick was running a vehicle on the road in Camborne. Such vehicles were in great for a time, and over the next years such inventions like hand brakes, multi-speed transmissions, and better steering developed. Some were commercially successful in providing mass transit, until a backlash against these large speedy vehicles resulted in the passage of the Locomotive Act (1865), which required self-propelled vehicles on public roads in the United Kingdom.

    first BENZ
    In 1879, Benz was given a patent for his first engine, which had been designed in 1878. Many of his other inventions made the use of the internal combustion engine for powering a vehicle. His first Motorwagen was built in 1885 in Mannheim, Germany. He was awarded the patent for its invention as of his application on 29 January 1886, Benz & Cie., which was founded in 1883). Benz began promotion of the vehicle on 3 July 1886,
  • companies

    In Britain, there had been a couple attempts to build steam cars with degrees of success, with Thomas Rickett even attempting a production run in 1860. Santler from Malvern is recognized by the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain as having made the first petrol-powered car in the country in 1894 followed by Frederick William Lanchester in 1895, but these were both one-offs. The first production vehicles in Great Britain came from the Daimler Company, a company founded by Harry J
  • production-line

    The large-scale, production-line making affordable automobiles was debuted by Ransom Olds in 1902 at his Oldsmobile factory located in Lansing Michigan and based upon the assembly line techniques braught by Marc Isambard Brunel at the Portsmouth Block Mills, England in 1802. The assembly line style of mass production and trading parts had been handed in the U.S. by Thomas Blanchard in 1821, at the Springfield Armory in Springfield.
  • survival

    Out of the two hundred American car makers in existence in 1920, only 43 survived in 1930, and with the Great Depression, by 1940, only 17 of those were left.

    Reflecting the fast pace of change, makes shared parts together so larger production resulted in lower costs for each price range. For example, in the 1930s, LaSalles, sold by Cadillac, used cheaper mechanical parts made by Oldsmobile; in the 1950s, Chevrolet shared hood, doors, roof, and windows with Pontiac; by the 1990s, corporate powertrains and shared platforms with changable brakes, suspension, and other parts were common. Even so, only major makers could afford high priced parts

    BY 1950s-1980s there a few american brands(of cars) left and then its when more and more imports start coming into america brands such like (LAMBORGHINI, FERRARI, HONDA, VOLKSWAGON,NISSAN, TOYATA) came in and they started selling fast
