I'll take a wild stab in the dark at these.

1. Where and in what year did the first GM vehicle assembled outside the US happen?

1960s in the UK?

2. When did GM produce its 25,000,000th car?

1966?

3. When did GM produce its 50,000,000th US made car?

1983?

4. What year did GM produce the first production car equipped with an air cushion restraint system as an option?

1972 IIRC, it was definately an Oldsmobile. That I know for sure.

I don't have the specific dates which is why I haven't answered these. But these three answers I'm sure are off a bit. The first GM product built outside of the US was built in Canada, probably a Buick. Ford had produced 25,000,000 vehicles by 1927 so I'm sure GM's was well before 1966, which would put their 50,000,000 decades earlier as well. GM has since topped 100,000,000, I believe.

Yes & Yes.

2. January 11, 1940

3. November 23, 1954

And as an extra tidbit, yes, the 100,000,000th vehicle was April 21, 1967.

As for number one, I found this to be a very odd country that I probably would never have guessed.

4. Close, 68, it was 1973.

5. Again close, it was July 30, 1990.

1st question... if you count Opel, then it's 1929 when Opel became part of GM.

Buick was making cars in Canada (Oshawa to be exact) well before that.

GM's 75-millionth car was a '62 Bonneville. The 50-mil was a '55 Chevy.

Good times:

1st 25 million: 32 years

2nd 25 million: 14 years

3rd 25 million: 8 years

4th 25 million: 5 years
