The Oldsmobile was founded by Ransom E. Olds in 1897.

For 107 years, the Lansing, Michigan factory cranked out 14 million cars out of a total of 35.2 million...an extremely prestigious accomplishment!

At the time it closed down in 2004, Oldsmobile was the oldest surviving American automobile line.
