Even with that being said there will be many Oldsmobile’s driving the roadways of Las Vegas and Henderson for many years to come.

In its earliest years, the company sold more cars than any other manufacturer, and after some financial shakeups that led to the departure of the company’s founder, Ransom Eli Olds, General Motors bought the company in 1908. One of the most interesting elements of Oldsmobile’s earliest years is that the first true automobile assembly lines began at an Oldsmobile plant. Just as Oldsmobile was a true American innovator, it has been said that New Look Collision with its State of the art auto body shops in Las Vegas and Henderson NV is an innovator in its own right.
Automobile pioneer Henry Ford is often and mistakenly credited with this revolutionary style of manufacturing, although it was Ford who decided to add the moving conveyer belt along which vehicles would be constructed. It was Oldsmobile, however, that offered the world the first mass-produced vehicle with the “Oldsmobile Curved Dash” existing as the first true assembly-line made vehicle.
Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, the company saw the introduction of several major inventions within the world of automobiles. With the introduction of an advanced semi-automatic transmission in the 30s called the “Automatic Safety Transmission,” and a fully automatic transmission called the “Hydramatic” in the 40s. Oldsmobile would continue to be a brand associated with advanced engine and transmission designs throughout its successive decades.

When the United States joined World War II, production on Oldsmobile vehicles would stop until the conclusion of the war. The first vehicle released after the end of the war was actually a design from 1942 even though the model year in which it was released was 1946. During the ensuing decades, Oldsmobile would continue to exist as a significant American car imprint, and like Las Vegas the company spent much of the 1950s with a reputation for fast cars and attitude.
After the 1950s, the highly profitable era of Oldsmobile production went through some less lucrative years as General Motors started losing ground to other vehicle manufacturers. The company did, however, produce a number of notable vehicles over the next few decades. The midsize Oldsmobile Cutlass, in particular, reigned as a top-seller in several model years during the 1970s and 1980s.
In the 1980s, Oldsmobile’s were popular again and often saw high marks from critics and buyers. Although the brand would never surpass Ford and Chevrolet as the best-selling overall brand, millions of Oldsmobile’s were sold throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s, when the brand would start to fade yet again. Unfortunately, Oldsmobile would never regain its status in the popularity game of different car brands with the up and coming car buyers.
Years of redesigns and reintroductions of newer models throughout the 1990s and the early 2000s would take their toll upon the company, after which parent company General Motors would seek to eliminate the brand completely from their lineup. The halting of production confused many fans of the brand since the vehicles produced by Oldsmobile had often received high marks from car buyers, even though the brand wasn’t selling as well as it once had. The extraordinary longevity of the brand also meant it was a brand beloved by millions of past and present Oldsmobile owners. Many of the loyalist of owners living right here in the Las Vegas valley.
