Hummer Discontinued, Joins Other Now-Defunct Famous Car Brands (PHOTOS)

GM announced today it has discontinued its Hummer brand, hardly the first such announcement in recent years.

The end of brands isn't exactly surprising. Auto journalist Steve Parker declared the Pontiac, Hummer, Saab and Saturn brands all dead on HuffPost in April 2009.

Ironically today, Saab was finally sold to a Dutch company, a brand GM previously announced it would be discontinuing. But those other brands haven't been so fortunate.

GM had been trying to sell the Hummer brand, but those talks failed.

Here are some other famous car brands that have died over the years. Which do you miss most? Do you own any of these vehicles or have you?
