Oldsmobile was one of the oldest brands of automobiles, founded by Ransom E. Olds in 1897. It produced more than 35 million vehicles in the United States between 1897 and 2004. In 1908, Oldsmobile was the second brand, after Buick, to become part of the newly established General Motors. It became a top brand for GM and pioneered such features as chrome-plating in 1926 and, in 1940, the first fully automatic transmission for a mass-market vehicle.
On April 29, 2004, the last Oldsmobile comes off the assembly line at the Lansing Car Assembly plant in Michigan, signaling the end of the 106-year-old automotive brand. Here below are some amazing vintage photos of ladies posing with their Oldsmobiles from the 1930s to 1950s.
