Not wanting to compete with the ""Big Three"" auto makers in the 1920s, Nash carved out a unique niche for well-designed luxury automobiles at medium prices. This strategy was very successful for Nash Motors as it became one of the few, profitable independent automobile manufacturers to survive the intense competition in the industry. Nash's unique auto designs have become sought-after classics.
