    Charles and Frank Duryea were America’s first gasoline-powered commercial car manufactures. Before finding an interest in gasoline engines, the two brothers were bicycle makers. On September 20, 1893, the first automobile strode along the streets of Springfield, Massachusetts. In 1896, Charles Duryea founded the Duryea Motor Wagon Company, and by that year, the company had sold thirteen Duryea model cars, a limousine that was produced well into the 1920s.

    The first car manufacturer here in America is what we now call “Oldsmobile”. Back in the late 1800’s, Ransome Eli Olds started “Olds Motor Works” in Detroit. The first automobile to be mass produced in the United States was the 1901, Curved Dash Oldsmobile designed by Olds. He produced 425 of this model that year and was America’s leading auto manufacturer from 1901 to 1904.
