Indianapolis once had more automobile manufacturers than Detroit. Movie stars and kings once clamored for specific models made only in Indiana. The state was also home to several innovations, such as tilt steering, cruise control, and front-wheel drive. These facts show the importance of the role of automotive manufacturing in Indianaís history.

Indiana Cars covers the facts, figures, and personalities that made automotive history in Indiana. This tour through history offers a look at

  • the classics, such as the Duesenberg Model J, Studebakerís Avanti, the Stutz Bearcat, and the HUMMER
  • the pioneers, such as Elwood Haynes, Fred and August Duesenberg, and Carl G. Fisher
  • the milestones in both the stateís and the nationís progress in automotive manufacturing.
