Thanks Bob. Another interesting tidbit about the first self-propelled vehicle: It could run for 15 minutes at full speed on a load of fuel and water, giving it a range of only 5/8ths of a mile.

Next question:

What year and what make of GM car was the first to have hydraulic brakes on all models?

I knew the car but was surprised it was as far back when I googled it (I'm not going to answer, as I had to look up the actual year)

I googled it and found that in 1931 gm didnot have anycars with HYD brakes. Ford was the last to put them on in 1939. We have taken Cad. Pontiac, and buick out of the picture, I don't know that much about Gm< and brain couldn't find the answer either, I will guess again.

1937 Chevy

Ok looks like someone might get this one through the process of elimination.

So far, nobody has answered the correct make or year.
It's not: Caddy, Pontiac, Buick, or Chevy.
Nor is it 1930, 31, 32, 36 or 37.

Final hint: It was between 1930 and 37.

So I will guess again 1934 olds.
