Many vehicle manufacturers have come and gone over the years. When a parent company dies, the vehicles left might be considered orphans. This is an interested glimpse into the orphanage.

Many vehicles have been made orphans, by the death of their parent companies

Our August 31, 2013, episode of The Automotive Hour, is a light-hearted look at "orphan cars" and will feature a guest host, Fred Duplechin. Fred is very knowledgeable on the topic as he owns three orphans. Mr. Duplechin is Regional Manager for the Studebaker Drivers Club, Vice-president of the Third Coast Avanti Club and a member of Gulf Coast DeLoreans.

Louis and Fred discuss what an orphan is, and many companies that produced them. This fun-filled program is full of facts and of interest to anyone who loves vintage cars.  Registered guest may download the show here.  You may also listen on Stitcher or iTunes.
