shopping for a used car in Indianapolis, IN

For a state with just 6.6 million people, Indiana has an outsized presence in the automotive world. The Hoosier State is home of the first gas pump, the first cross-country highway, several auto plants, a vanished major brand of autos, two of the oldest car dealerships in the world, and that famous 500-mile drive that starts and stops in the same spot.

When it comes to getting behind the wheel themselves, Indiana residents are part of the stronghold of north-central states with a strong affinity for the Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck — it's the top-selling vehicle of any kind in the state. It helps that General Motors builds the truck in Fort Wayne.

Though the Ford F-150 is the top seller in the nation, Chevrolet wins Hoosier hearts. Its Impala sedan and Equinox SUV are also big sellers, while the minivan market is a showdown between the Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country.

The Fort Wayne factory also builds GMC Sierra trucks. Toyota builds Sequoia trucks, Sienna minivans and Highlander crossover SUVs in Princeton. Honda makes the Civic compact in Greensburg. Subaru assembles its Outback wagon and Legacy sedan in Lafayette. The AM General MV-1 taxicabs, which can accommodate wheelchairs, are built in Mishawaka.

The Studebaker brothers of South Bend, makers of horse carriages, added cars to production in 1902. The last Studebaker sedan rolled off the assembly line in 1963. The Studebaker Museum in South Bend tells of the brand's rise and fall.

Indiana has two of the 10 oldest auto dealerships in the country. A.J. Moser began selling threshing machines in Berne in 1885. It added Ford vehicles in the early 1900s. The dealership is still going strong. But it is a youngster compared with W. Hare & Son in Noblesville. It started selling carriages in 1847. By 1912, it was selling Cadillac, Hupmobile, Studebaker and Overland coupes and sedans. Today it's a top Chevrolet dealership run by Hare's great-great-great granddaughters, Courtney and Monica.

Carl Fisher of Greensburg, a onetime car salesman and inventor of a type of headlights, started promoting the idea of a cross-country highway in 1912. The Lincoln Highway was dedicated in October 1913. Using a network of existing roads, the 3,898-mile route from Times Square in New York across 14 states to Lincoln Park in San Francisco took about 60 days to drive. Motorists had to search for gas pumps (a device invented by Sylvanus Freelove Bowser of Fort Wayne in 1885).

Since 1911, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has hosted the Indianapolis 500 race on Memorial Day weekend. Up to 200,000 fans watch 33 drivers go 200 times around a 2.5-mile oval. The track was covered in bricks for the first race, earning the nickname ?The Brickyard.? Open-wheel IndyCars powered by descendants of the 1935 Offenhauser four-cylinder engine have won the race a record 27 times.

The writer Kurt Vonnegut was born in Indianapolis in 1922 and later recalled his childhood as  "the 500-mile Speedway Race, and then 364 days of miniature golf, and then the 500-mile Speedway Race again."
