This is just a small token of respect to the brand I first started driving with; a brand that for years was abused, ignored, and generally mishandled by the parent Chrysler Corporation. They never seemed to figure out what to do with Plymouth. False starts like the Prowler; gaffes like not giving Plymouth an LH car; instead giving it to floundering Eagle. Homonegizing the Neon by blurring the lines between Dodge and Plymouth models to nothing. Delaying the Breeze cloud car. And that's just in the mid-late 1990's!!

The first Plymouth: Produced June 11, 1928. It is a Plymouth 4.
The last Plymouth: Produced June 28, 2001. It is a Plymouth Neon.

Following are some places to look for further info on this historic brand and how it ended up on the scrap heap.

Writings on the end of Plymouth
Read all about the Daimler takeover. While the writing was on the wall, the demise of Plymouth is certainly intertwined with the the end of the independent Chrysler Corporation. The links takes you to Allpar's book section; buying from Amazon through Allpar not only supports Allpar but gets you a discount!
Another editorial on the End
I for one will miss Plymouth. Personal ownership has been limited to a couple Horizons and a Neon, but my affinity for the brand goes way beyond that. It will be missed.
