I have one table with all contracts for cars. One car can have more contracts. For example one contract from 1 januari 2013 until 1 july 2013 and a next contract from 1 sept 2013 until 2 febr 2014.
How can I make a view in SQL 2000 server that shows the last contract of each car.

Example:
number  -  carnumber  -  enddate
123          -  195               -  20130701
158          -  155              -   20141012
168          -  195               -  20140201

As result I want
number  -  carnumber  -  enddate
158          -  155              -   20141012
168          -  195               -  20140301
