The Kissel Motor Car Company of Hartford, Wisconsin, manufactured a variety of vehicles from 1906 until 1931. Its most famous model was the Speedster, affectionately called the “Gold Bug” because of its standard bright-yellow-paint colour. Its original debut came at the 1919 Chicago Auto Show, and between 50 and 100 were built per year through 1931. Years later it earned a spot on the top 100 greatest sports cars of all time list. Come into the Canadian Automotive Museum today to learn how this speedster became a legend among sports cars
