Car News China shutting down

A site we have all depended upon time and again for Chinese auto information, Car News China, is sadly shutting down:
https://carnewschina.com/2018/10/08/goin-home/

My first interactions with Erik and Dragin were on that site itself, in the comments section below articles.

The site will be up but no longer updated, hence we can thankfully utilize that as an archive. Two other sites related to CNC will remain live: ChinaCarHistory and CoolCarsInChina.

[Erik has just posted an article on China Car History]

Not to forget Tycho used to be a member here too:

"History is bunk" was a quote pinned to Henry Ford's legacy, whether or not true.
But I don't think China's Ford, Li Shufu, would agree, since his own personal history is so rich.
I wish Faulkner, deFyter, and Ingen Schenau all the best, with their new website challenge, tracing the history of the Chinese auto industry. Perhaps it's a matter of good collaboration to get the his.., or her, story right.
And of course I wish Tycho smooth sailing to new amazing horizons.

China is a progressed country, but more than 50 years ago china was under developing country. its progress (GDP) is always very fast..
But if we talk about 70 years ago the most populating of China was middle class.
That time some brands were working with full potential and only rich people could contain these cars, The ration of rich people and car containing peoples was very low.
some of oldest car brands present in China are below...
SAIC Motor
FAW Group
Dongfeng Motor
These cars started manufactured between 1950-1970
With passage of time these brand improve their cars and its efficiency, now china is one of the top car manufacturing country in the world.
