This is a demo or test for an upcoming film about the Marmon Automobile Company and its founders. This presentation is being used to market the project in order for us to obtain producers for this project.

Marmon Motor Car Company was an automobile manufacturer founded by Howard Marmon and owned by Nordyke Marmon & Company of Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. It was established in 1902 and was merged and renamed in 1933. They produced cars under the Marmon brand. It was succeeded by Marmon-Herrington and later the Marmon Motor Company of Denton, Texas. The name currently survives through the Marmon Group of Chicago, Illinois.

The Model 32 of 1909 spawned the Wasp, winner of the first Indianapolis 500 motor race. This car featured the world's first rear-view mirror.

      Wonderful cars, so sad they are not made anymore, like a lot of the greats. Just goes to show the phrase "The candle that burns twice as bright, burns half as long" is often true...

      any chance you might go back into the business? the US has needed a new car company since the first "bailout" (they called it a loan then) I don't have any money to invest, but I know where to find about 20,000 rednecks who have experience in auto manufacturing who sneak into the woods to manufacture meth, instead of pickup trucks, the fed/state govt, won't permit it, but we will build them and buy them. legal or otherwise.

      As the great grand-daughter of Howard Marmon, I am pleased to see some interest in the Marmon automobile and the Marmon family. I wish you the best of luck in getting this project produced.
