Biographical or historical data
Indiana has a rich automobile history. In 1909, Indiana produced the second largest number of automobiles in the country; only Michigan was ahead of the Hoosier State. Indiana car companies mainly chose to refrain from mass production techniques for producing the vehicles. Instead they focused on the craftsman method, where they put the cars together one piece at a time. They made cars that were of a very high quality but that tended to be more expensive than the mass-produced vehicles. Hoosier auto production declined with the economic factors of the 1920s and 1930s. Studebaker, the major exception to this decline, continued Indiana production of automobiles until 1963.
