The Curved Dash Runabout

—Fire didn't destroy Ransom E. Olds’ dreams —

After fire destroyed the new Olds Motor Works plant in Detroit on March 9, 1901, the Lansing Business Men's Association offered Olds land originally acquired in hopes of permanently hosting the State Fair. He took it. His new plant produced only the curved dash runabout, the first car to be called "Oldsmobile." Ransom Olds left the company in 1904, and General Motors acquired it in 1908. The runabout gave way to new models, and Lansing produced Oldsmobiles until 2001.
