Frank RUGGLES started with a friction-drive vehicle in Ware / Massachusetts in 1905. As there was no succes they closed the same year.
In 1921 Frank RUGGLES restarted in Saginaw / Michigan, where he organized the RUGGLES MOTOR TRUCK COMPANY that continued in the commercial field into 1928 [Kimes, Clark].
