Some car models aren't going anywhere any time soon.

Take the Ford Mustang: since its first production year back in 1965, new 'Stangs have rolled off the factory line ever since.

So too have mainstay family cars like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, both of which have enjoyed several decades of production with no end in sight.

Other cars experience the occasional production hiatus, such as the Chevrolet Camaro, only to return redesigned and re-released a few years later.

Still, other cars go out of production for good. And for every Pinto or El Camino that was rightly mothballed due to performance woes or wretched aesthetics, dozens of once-beloved cars have also been discontinued.

Here are 50 cars that aren't being made anymore:

Acura Integra


Used to help launch Honda's new upscale Acura brand, the Integra was a well-respected, affordable sports car that was produced from the mid-1980s to the mid-aughts. Its demise, like those of many other similar coupes, was due to market demand, not performance or safety issues.

Considered a luxury/sports car hybrid priced just in range of the average consumer, the Acura TL was a flagship vehicle for the automaker. It was considered safe, capable, and it retained its value well over the years. The company took a chance nonetheless, blending their lower end TSX and higher end TL into the mid-price TXL.

AMC Eagle

The unique AMC Eagle merged the convenience of a compact sedan with the capabilities of a four-wheeler vehicle. At the time of its release in 1979, it was the only 4WD passenger car, and its off-road capabilities matched that of a Jeep or other smaller four-wheel drive automobile.
