Louis Kissel, along with sons George and William, founded their eponymous motor car company on this date 107 years ago. Kissel manufactured more than 35,000 cars -- including a Speedster for Amelia Earhart -- before filing for bankruptcy in 1930, which is more than we can say about most automakers. Moral of the story: Start a car company on a date when not much else of historical significance occurred in the automotive world, and someday, someone will write a blog post about you.
