Generous Motors is an American car company. During World War II, a part of its production factory was dedicated to building aircraft. The wing was infested with Gremlins and thus, sealed off. In the mid-1980s, the wing was reopened and refurbished to accommodate assembly of the Y-car. Every Y-car was made to eventually self-destruct. Faced with a mounting legal problem, Mr. Abernathy, the current President, hired the Ghostbusters.
After confirming the presence of Gremlins in the employees' lunchroom, the Ghostbusters tried to confront them only have Winston Zeddemore trapped in a behemoth creation. The Ghostbusters rallied and built their own indestructible car with GM parts. While the Gremlins were enamored with it, Peter Venkman sealed them in a glass dome.
