Jan. 1988 Chrysler Corporation announces it will halt production of cars at its Kenosha assembly plant at the end of the 1988 model run.
The site of AMC’s lakefront car factory now is home to a park, two museums and harbor-side condominiums.
Bankrupt Chrysler LLC announces plans to sell or shut down the 109 acre Kenosha engine plant by October 2010.
This is a move that ends more than a century of auto production in Kenosha, a place where Ramblers first came off the line in 1902.
