Ransome E. Olds... same guy that started Oldsmobile in 1899 or thereabouts... went on to found REO when Olds went to GM. Made trucks up to the 80s I think:  Diamond REO.

Spartan Motors which makes fire engines and motor home chassis was started by a group of former REO engineers after they shut down here.
