DeLorean: The DeLorean Motor Company was around from 1975-1982. During its time it made only one – although very unique – model of car. The DeLorean had a futuristic look to it and featured gull-wing doors.
Hummer: The Hummer brand lasted from 1992 to 2010, when General Motors announced it was shutting down the line. These large trucks and SUVs were popular, but sales of the gas-guzzling vehicles dropped in recent years.
