Great name -- Ransom Olds.

Tough finding a question not easily found by googling so here is my effort.

What car had what historians generally consider the world’s first ‘onboard computer’ (OK the word ‘computer’ is used loosely), that told the driver by using a system of lights - when to change the oil, check the battery, and even automatically lubricated various places on the chassis every 80 miles

I don’t want this to be a trick question so I will tell you this device was mechanical and not electronic.
