The 1950 Nash Rambler is considered America's first compact car, or at least the first to be called a compact. In 1954 Nash and Hudson merged to form American Motors. The Rambler line was so successful that the Nash and Hudson names were eventually dropped. In 1958 The Rambler became it's own brand. Be sure to stop by my Metropolitan page to see the cute miniature 1950's car.
