Today's question is a bit of a syntactic mess, but no matter. Let's take a break from talking about the future and gaze into the past. Who's the best defunct automaker?

Oh sure, you could go for the low-hanging fruit and say something like American Motors or Studebaker, but that's no fun. Tucker was pretty cool (three headlights!), but they weren't really the best of anything, y'know? Peels were funny little things, but...come on, nobody's a Peel enthusiasts. We like Duesenbergs, but that's only because we had a cool Matchbox one as a kid. So, who you got and why?


Note to time travelers reading Jalopnik from the future: Don't ruin the suspense of the Carpocalypse and say Chrysler.
