      ...for our economic renaissance by destroying most other countries and killing their people.

      The economy was very weak (with increasing debt) right up to the war. During the war the economy sucked (rationing, no consumer goods). Only after the war did it improve.

        cars that were bought in 1929 or before couldn't be replaced during the Depression with lowered incomes.

        During the war few cars were being made.

        By late 1945 the old cars really needed to be replaced.
