REO Speedwagon was named after a car!

That's right. The 80's group, REO Speedwagon, was named after a car. REO was started by Ransom Eli Olds after he split from his original company, Oldsmobile. More interesting information? The Depot Hack (1911 Ford Model T at the Fountainhead Auto Museum) was used to transport people from the train depot to their lodging. In the early days, horse drawn carriages that met people at the train depot were called hacks. Hence the name!

The 1909 Maxwell and Alice Ramsey group has made it to Buffalo, NY. For more info, visit http://www.aliceramseycentennial.blogspot.com/
