You were so close. He used approximately 1000000 bushels of soy bean in 1935. He did have 12000 acres, but he might have bought some from outside sources, but it doesnt say either way.

Next question: On the Duesenberg model J, SJ, and SSJ, the chassis had a self lubrication system. It would have a light come on telling you that is was having an oil pump lube all of the moving parts, and another light to tell you the system was empty. Another light was used to tell you the battery needed checking. This kept the car in tip-top shape.
So, how often did this system repeat itself?

Not even close!! Remember, this was the dark ages, and to keep stuff going good it needed caring VERY often.

Chevrolet dates back to 1911..and even General Motors is only a few years older than that (1908). DaimlerChrysler can trace its history back to 1925 (Chrysler), 1914 (Dodge), and about 1890 (Daimler and Benz).

The answer is Studebaker and Marmon. Both companies produced cars (Studebaker from the early 1900s until 1966 and Marmon from the early 1900s until around 1935 even though trucks continued until 1997) and both started operations in the 1850s. Both companies are still in business today.

Hmm.....non-American based trivia.....

Until I come up with an original non-North American based question, here's one for you (borrowed from another source):

What was the first production car powered by a V6 engine?

When Hudson said studebaker, I remembered that they used to make horse-drawn carriages, and they are the right answer.

As for the V6, I have no idea. Perhaps a Buick?

Not a Buick.

And both Studebaker and Marmon date back to the 1850s...I just haven't been able to track down exact incorporation dates for each of them to find which one's older. I've been told that it's actually Marmon.

first production V6?

Hmm .. was it the Lancia Aurelia?

Knowing you though, it's probably a 1903 Doppleganger or somesuch
