Lost Car Companies of DetroitFrom the more than two hundred auto companies that tried their luck in the Motor City, just three remain: Ford, General Motors and Chrysler. But many of those lost to history have colorful stories worth telling.

Local author and historian Alan Naldrett will discuss these tales from his new book about the rise and fall of several of these lost car companies and how these short-lived businesses still had an impact on the auto industry of today.

Please register so we have enough seats. Register here or call 586.751.5377. This program will be held down the hall from the Library in the Warren Community Center’s Cafeteria.
