Initial Stub

I put this article in the Engineering Workgroup category as I wasn't sure where else it should go, or if perhaps an Automotive Workgroup should be created.

Also, this is at present more of a launching point for articles on the various OEMs and also the VIN system (which I work with daily). I hope to write articles on at least a few manufacturers as well as VINs over the next few days.

Maybe we should have a Transportation workgroup. Henry A. Padleckas 11:42, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Split catalog and article

I suggest that the list of brands could be split off into Catalog of Automobile Manufacturers and lest this article develop as a regular article. Derek Harkness 11:50, 1 May 2007 (CDT)

Too US-centric

The fact that there are "several hundred manufacturers in the US alone", or that "the following is a list of the major automobile manufacturers in the United States and much of the Western Hemisphere" is irrelevant to the subject of this article. It should be written from a global perspective. Zunaid Parker 01:27, 7 November 2007 (CST)

By all means...be bold! Stephen Ewen 01:29, 7 November 2007 (CST)
