Ransom Eli Olds founded both the Oldsmobile automobile brand and the REO car and truck brands. The Oldsmobile company he left in 1903 ended up in the fold of giant General Motors. Meanwhile, R.E. went off to start the company represented by his initials.

The R.E. Olds Transportation Museum in Lansing, Michigan celebrates both companies. This gallery is comprised of images from the museum and from a variety of classic and collector car shows where we’ve encountered these cars and trucks.
