Oldsmobile was established in 1897 by Ransom Eli Olds and became part of General Motors in 1908.
An excerpt from a 1903 Oldsmobile ad:
The Passing of the Horse
The silent horse power of this runabout is measurable, dependable and spontaneous. The horse power generated by supplies of hay and oats is variable, uncertain and irresponsive.
There is "Nothing to watch but the road" when you drive The Oldsmobile
"The best thing on wheels"
