suspension design question

Well if torkmonster is not going to respond I have one:

name two types or designs or pieces of suspension whose names are also car companies.

(hint: one car company does not exist anymore, the other still exists sort of but does not make automobiles any more)

not the two I was thinking of but OK

I was thinking of DeDion but the Hotchkiss one had not occurred to me so I guess there are three. What is the third? (hint: it is a suspension part)

Springfield, Massachusetts in 1893 (prototype) and 1896 (production - 13 units).

America's first gasoline-powered commercial car manufacturers were Charles and Frank Duryea. (source)


The AACA features the Duryea on their logo:

Thanks, Torkmonster.

Ford, GM, and Chrysler all began offering factory installed radios in the same year. What year was it?

Wow, I was stumped but shouldn't have been. I was thinking in the forties, forgetting my old boss had a 33 with a factory radio. I have seen the 32 factory radio setup as well and certainly have never seen one in a Model A so I think you are right.

Call Terminex! We got bugs!

In 1971 Volkswagen introduced the super beetle.
What model/identification number did Volkswagen refer to it as?
And how many years did they produce this car?
