     The last automobile manufactured after the start of World War II was in 1942, when auto manufacturing plants were converted into Defense Plants, making airplanes, tanks, and military vehicles and equipment.  Because of the shortage of men, many women of all ages were put to work at these plants, earning each of them the nickname "Rosie the Riveter".  Millie, Connie and Mary did their part, at the Chevrolet Plant.
