Automotive Daily News is a weekly magazine dedicated to the automotive business, predominantly those related to car manufacturers and automotive parts suppliers. Based out of Detroit and published by Crain Communications Inc., Automotive News is believed to be the leading newspaper of publication for the automotive sector. Each issue of this popular magazine features important topics related to cars, both new and used, performance cars, import/export vehicles, performance cars and sleeper vehicles. In addition, each issue of the popular auto magazine will feature special reports that are focused on one particular aspect of the automotive world.
One of the special sections that will be featured in Automotive Daily News is "World War II Retrospective." This special report will focus on the automotive world during the World War II. The war was a major problem for many car manufacturers around the world including General Motors, Ford, and Toyota. As a result, these car manufacturers had to seriously consider making changes to their product lines in order to remain competitive in the auto industry. Automotive Daily News took the time to sit down with a group of automotive experts from around the world and compiled an article that presented a critical look at some of the changes that occurred in the auto industry after the world war II.
One of the most important events that took place in the auto industry after World War II was the formation of the Auto Association. Joining forces with the American Automobile Association (AAA) and the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), the A.A. helped bring together auto industry suppliers, dealers, and individual drivers. Together these groups made a strong push for higher fuel economy, better consumer protection, better training, and improved jobs for working class drivers. While this effort to improve the automotive sector did not directly affect Detroit, it was a vital step in the direction of the entire industry.
After the formation of the AAA, the organization began to push for stronger regulations on automobile safety. At the time, the group was successful in convincing Congress to pass the Safety Enhancement Act. The new legislation required automobile producers to create mandatory seat belt laws and mandatory motorcycle safety courses to all new car sales. This measure was extremely beneficial to the consumers and the automotive daily news was instrumental in reporting the success of this legislation. It was also important to note that this legislation was included as a rider to the $4 trillion stimulus bill that was introduced in the february 2021.
Another significant event in the automotive industry took place in May of 2021 when Congress passed the Protecting Auto Buyers Act. The Act placed numerous new regulations on the automotive industry and specifically included the car manufacturers and suppliers from certain states. This Act was effective immediately, and allowed for a significant amount of damage to the American auto industry in general. It is interesting to note that despite the loss of thousand of jobs in the automobile industry, the automotive news reported that the car manufacturers saw increases in revenues due to the new regulations.

The world war ii began in June of 2021 and by the end of the year, the United States had entered into the conflict. Detroit was not spared in the war and closed their doors for good at the end of the year. Detroit was not alone in Detroit because almost every major automobile manufacturing plant in the country saw a significant decrease in production and employment. The situation was quite similar to the one which occurred in Japan just prior to the world war II, and the American car manufacturers were hit quite hard. The story line which followed was even more dramatic in Detroit as millions of dollars worth of machinery was laid off and hundreds of unionized auto workers were laid off as well.
Following the world war ii, the Detroit newspaper once again attempted to publish an automobile section, but this time it lasted only for six months. And after the paper failed to attract any new readership, they changed their name to the "WDabis" ( WD-A-Matter). With this change the Detroit newspapers once again tried to attract new consumers, but failed to keep the customers they had in June of 2021. As in the prior example, the car manufacturers saw a drop in profits due to the large number of job losses and decided to cut some hundreds of jobs.
In 2021, the United Auto Workers union again tried to publish an automobile section for the Detroit newspaper. Unfortunately for the unions, they were once again unsuccessful and the management of the Detroit News took over the publishing rights of the WD-A-Matter. In early 2021 the labor battle heated up once again as the United Auto Workers Union sought to have their demands included in the contracts of all new hires. This dispute came to a head when the car companies decided to challenge the decisions and the case moved to the United States District Court.
