Didn't Olds develop the auto trans first?

Cadillac did the engineering & R&D, starting in '32. Handed it off to Olds for in-car testing circa '37.

Corporate called for Olds to debut it in order to take any reliability hits in Year 1 vs. Cadillac.

Cadillac did the bulk of GM's engineering for the first 35 years or so.

Bathazar beat me to the punch, although

lets not forget that before the V8 Cadillac

introduced another innovation: the FOUR

cylinder inline motor, back when may cars

were still 1 cylinder powered.

I was pleasantly surprised to find an even MORE

advanced version of my 1997 STS's computer

DIC in the BMW 735iL, it's not as user friendly

but certainly beat Cadillac to the punch in 1988

but offers less info. than the Cadillac.

Also the six cylinder BMW cost $53,000 in 1988. :blink:

The 1967 Eldorado was a game changer, as was the

original CTS-V. In a way those two cars are an

example of Cadillac coming full circle.
