  AMC, GONE BUT REMEMBERED
This year (1988) we saw another auto manufacturer disappear from the list of auto independence.  American Motors was purchased by Chrysler Corporation. Chrysler kept two Marques, the famous Jeep and Eagle.  American Motors was the decendant of Nah Motors.  Charles W. Nash, a former president of General Motors, in 1916 purchased the Thomas B. Jeffery Company of Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Jeffery had first built the Rambler in 1902.

Farewell to AMC
AMC started life at the turn of the century producing cars by Thomas Jeffery under the Rambler name.  In 1916 the company was sold to Charles Nash, who resigned as president of General motors to produce cars under his own name.  In 1954, Nash merged with Hudson to form American Motors Corp.,  which continued to produce cars until the buyout of Chrysler ended the AMC nameplate in 1987.
