1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1,
with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two,
loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011
issue of HOT ROD Magazine.

2013 Buick Encore AWD Premium - WINDING ROAD POV Test Drive
For the best video experience, we recommend wearing a good set of
headphones for the POV Test Drive at 3:10. The audio in this video was
recorded with binaural microphones that, when played back through
headphones, give the feel of 3D sound. Trick stuff.

2013 Buick Encore Test Drive & Luxury Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/buick/encore/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Buick Encore
is an all new model that is poised to take on the compact luxury crossover
segment. The Encore combines a chiseled exterior design, versatile
interior, with tons of technology and premium materials to create a one of
a kind vehicle. The 2013 Buick Encore comes in 4 trims: Base, Convenience,
Leather, and Premium. You can opt for either a FWD or AWD version. The base
price is $24,200 making the Encore a great choice as an entry level luxury
The compact crossover segment is so hot that Buick has decided to bring
this all new model (the Encore) to market. If the Encore looks a little
smaller than most crossover you are used to seeing that's because it is.
This new compact luxury crossover segment just may catch on. The Encore,
like all Buick models, has the big signature grille up front. Buick is no
longer at the bottom of the premium barrel, instead it is moving up the
ladder. The large bold headlamps and the portholes in the hood are
signature Buick cues.
When Buick set out to build the Encore, they did not just want to make
another crossover. Instead they wanted a relatively inexpensive crossover
to look premium. The exterior hits that mark with the multiple bends in the
sheet metal and other styling cues, while the theme is carried over to the
interior with the premium materials and tons of technology. There is plenty
of room in the Encore for 4 adults and their gear.
The 2013 Buick Encore is powered by a turbocharged 1.4 liter 4-cylinder ECOTEC engine
that makes 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission is a 6-speed manual and you can opt for either FWD
or AWD. Fuel economy is excellent with the FWD model netting 25 MPG in the
city and 33 MPG on the highway.
From a driver's perspective, the Encore drives very well. Buick has paid a
lot of attention to keeping the engine noise and road noise down to a
minimum. The Encore feels like a very premium vehicle when you get in it.
The Electro-Mechanical steering feels good and is responsive. The interior
is very spacious giving the passengers plenty of head room. The soft
leather seats and nice dash materials contribute to the overall premium
feel which is something you just do not find in a $25k crossover. Buick
understands that technology and connectivity is important in this segment.
So they made Bluetooth and Rear Vision Camera standard on all trims. But
it's the higher trim levels that get the full Infotainment system.
The main competition is the Mini Countryman and the Volkswagen Tiguan. For
a starting price of under $25k the 2013 Buick Encore makes a ton of sense
for a lot of people.

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by
Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History
Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim:
"No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into
the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar
Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom
fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the
bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of
another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their
invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men,
William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building
business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant
realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with
Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were
regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks
through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the
compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for
the largest company in the world."
