"sit on the hood of Mr. Larson's Oldsmobile"

Oldsmobile was an American brand of car produced from 1897 to 2004, primarily by Detroit-based company General Motors. 14 million out of 35.2 million of the cars sold in its 107-year history were produced in Lansing, Michigan. The 1901 to 1904 Oldsmobile Curved Dash was the first mass-produced car and Oldsmobile was the oldest surviving American brand until its phasing out in 2004. Oldsmobile sales were particularly high in the 1970s and 1980s, with the Cutlass car being the top selling car in 1976 in the United States.
