    • This car started life as an idea

      This car started life as an idea. But whose idea? Tracing it back, you'll find it actually came out of the mind of R. E. Olds of the Oldsmobile Motor Works in Lansing, Michigan. Two brothers from Berlin (Kitchener), Milton and Nelson Good used the Oldsmobile Curved-Dash as the model for this car, which they named the LeRoy. It is Canada's first production vehicle built in 1902-03.1a
