Cadillac founder, Henry Leland, developed his skills as a fine machinist under firearm manufacturer, Samuel Colt. He moved to Detroit in 1890 to produce precision gears and was soon making steam engines for street cars. After developing the gas engine for the 1901 Curved Dash Olds, he attracted a group of financial backers who partnered wîth him to form the Cadillac Motor Company, named for the French explorer who had discovered Detroit in the early 18th Century. Cadillac pioneered the interchangeability of parts prior to Ford's assembly line. Its cars won many awards, leading to the advertising slogan, 'Standard of the World.'
