Even though it is part of the 1983: Doomsday Timeline, its creator or creators have more work to do before it can be complete. You are welcome to give suggestions at the Talk Page.

With the US and Germany nearly wiped out on Doomsday and Japan sinking into isolationism, automotive production has taken a huge hit. Many of the survivor nations, cut off from any outside supply of automobiles have seen the beginnings of smaller automotive manufacturing operations. While the headquarters of the major auto companies have been destroyed, some of the regional subsidiaries or manufacturing plants have survived and continue to operate as independent companies.
