Yahoo 1961 Oldsmobile, side view.

Oldsmobile is the oldest continuing car marque in the United State (it predates Ford by 6 years). The Olds Motor Co. was incorporated in 1897 with an initial capital investment of only $50,000.00 That year the company produced only 4 cars.

The full name "Oldsmobile" was first used in 1900. Prior to that, they were known referred to as "Olds", built by the Olds Motor Works of Lansing. Sadly, the Oldsmobile division of GM shut down in 2003.

Just look at those lines! From the days when body design was still an art, not just a techinical excercise.

In 1949 the Oldsmobile company unveiled its "Rocket" series of V8 motors. They made a big splash, and in 1950's the Rocket 88 equipped olds won 8 out 10 NASCAR races (with automatic transmissions, no less). From 1961 to 1963 Oldsmobiles came equipped with the 394ci, "Sky Rocket" motor. You can see the trademark "Rocket 88" emblem here on the trunk.
