Did You Know?

This is a post about REO Speedwagon. You've heard of the band? 

REO Speedwagon

How about the truck?

1936 REO Speedwagon Pickup

Or this one: REO Speedwagon Lorry.

Or 1949 REO Speedwagon Pickup.

How about a 1905 REO?

But, did you know what REO stands for?

Ransom Eli Olds. Getting close?


No longer made, by the way. 


  1. Had no idea.

    Will admit I miss some of the car companies/brands of yesteryear. While my grandfather had a Olds, Pontiac was always a favorite of mine.

  2. Diamond REO....the Oldsmobile was one of Detroits better autos.

  3. Indeed I have heard of the band (age showing) though not my cup of tea, on the other hand that there 1949 pickup is something that floats my boat.

  4. Mark
    Use to listen to the band back in the 70's as was the case with CCR, 3-Dog Night and of course the Eagles---no artist or band can touch those groups these days---1905 REO is an awesome pickup!!!
