Hi everyone,

I have across these 3 words MANUFACTURER / MAKER / BUILDER when talking about historic vehicles. The point is that there should be any difference in meaning but, though I have been surfing the internet and looking up in several dictionaries, I haven't got through it.

Could you please help me?

Thanks so much in advance.

    Hello there!

    The words have approximately the same meaning. Manufacturer sounds perhaps a bit more industrial, i.e., made in a factory, while builder or maker might imply a more artisan, small-scale production. Builder is more commonly used referring to the construction of houses and other edifices, maker with smaller items. All three words would be appropriate to refer to a person or business that constructs vehicles.
