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."

1987 Buick Grand National (Regal T-Type Turbo) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
**I made an editing error at the beginning. Thanks a bunch to Streetside Classics of Charlotte, NC for allowing me to film this video! Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth look at the understated muscle car of the late 80s, the Buick Grand National, this one specifically the Regal T-Type. The GN and the T-Type are identical except for badging and interior trim. It wasn't until you stepped it on up to the GNX did you get the truly different package (which I will explain in the video). The GN is arguably the most menacing looking buick of all time with it's black monochrome paint scheme and turbo charged 3.8 V6 pumping out amazing performance numbers for the time period, even today! A unique experience to be able to check out one of these beasts. During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world, presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960 Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new, exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's Seat of YouTube!

Buick - 1985 Buick Grand National
Here's another great video from the History Channel's archive on the 1985 Buick Regal turbocharged Grand National. Per the History Channel's exact video description: "A high-horsepower, attention-grabbing celebration of speed, the 1985 Grand National represents Buick's return to muscle-car roots. Now, two teams of veteran mechanics try to extract everything they can from the Grand National's made-for-speed equipment (including turbo engines, fuel injectors, and racing transmissions) to transform the car into a big, mean racing machine The premise is simple: FULL THROTTLE selects two teams who are each given the same model of classic car in a similar state of disrepair. They're supplied with a garage, tools, and parts, and after 20 hours of repair time, they battle it out in an old-fashioned drag-race on a certified track. The winner keeps both cars. The loser keeps nothing. They're fast, they're flashy, they reignited America's love of muscle cars-and finally, the 1985 BUICK GRAND NATIONAL returns with a vengeance on the track."

1947 Buick Super 4 door Sedan Blk
Just to show you that Buick had a very nice family sedan available post war. Notice how nice the fabrics are, surely long wearing, and the bilateral symmetry of the dash..notice the clustering on both sides of the radio speaker. Notice also that the turn signal stalk is on the right side of the steering column, next to the gearshift. The pedal operated parking brake is interesting too, most parking/emergency brakes were of a pistol grip type at this time. Dynaflow would not be available until the 1949 model year.

Ford History - Birth Ford Motor Company
In n 1903, Henry Ford funded, with 11 other partners the Ford Motor Company, and began a long journey that would made Ford a major player in modern cars history. Ford began its work immediately, thanks to the experience of his founder in the field of the first motor vehicles. The first car initialed with the letters of the alphabet were made ​​and sold. There were cars with different number of cylinders, with various programs and probably the most successful car was the Model N, a small and light four-cylinder vehicle, offered for sale on the market at a price of $500. The real breakthrough came in 1908 when production Ford launched the T, called the universal car, destined for a popular diffusion, not only in the US but also in other countries around the world. In a short time T, affectionately called ""Tin Lizzie"" spread on American roads, thanks to the relatively small cost, which was about $ 400. The Model T became the symbol of mobility and and its production reached the 10,660 units in the first year, beating all records in the automotive industry at the time. The first Ford models were also distributed in Europe becoming very popular. At the end of 1913, Ford produced half of all cars produced in the United States and to cope with the demand, Ford green lit mass production in his factory, trying to save on downtime. Ford thought that if every worker had been assigned to a place with a specific task, rather than move from one section to another, the car would have built more quickly. To test this theory, in the summer of 1913 a frame was dragged with a rope along the floor of the factory in Michigan. Thus the modern assembly line was born and the end, the Model T came off the assembly line at a rate much higher than before. With the new production soon reached a record of $ 10 million Ford T produced, and Ford was forced to build larger facilities, capable of responding to the increasing number of orders. Ford increased wages significantly, convinced that the worker who had built it, must have the economic means to buy their T. In 1919, Edsel Ford, son of Henry became the president of the company and that 3 years later was absorbed by the Lincoln Group, specialized in production of luxury cars. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Nel 1903, dando vita assieme ad altri undici soci alla ford motor company, henry ford iniziò un lungo cammino che l'avrebbe fatto diventare uno dei principali protagonisti della storia contemporanea. La Ford iniziò subito la sua attività, forte dell'esperienza accumulata nel settore dei primi veicoli a motore proprio da ford. Furono realizzate e vendute le prime automobili siglate con le lettere dell'alfabeto. Furono auto con diverso numero di cilindri, con diverse trasmissioni e probabilmente l'auto che riscosse maggior successo fu la Model N una piccola e leggera quattro cilindri, posta in vendita sul mercato al prezzo di 500 dollari. La vera svolta produttiva avvenne nel 1908 quando Ford lanciò la T, quella che egli definì la vettura universale, destinata a una diffusione popolare, non solo negli stati Uniti ma anche in altri paesi del mondo. In breve tempo la T, simpaticamente denominata ""TIN LIZZIE"" si diffuse sulle strade americane, grazie al costo piuttosto limitato che si aggirava sui 400 dollari. La Model T Divenne così il simbolo della mobilità personalei e la produzione del primo anno di quest'auto raggiunse le 10.660 unità, battendo tutti i record dell'industria automobilistica di allora. anche in europa furono distribuiti i primi modelli costruiti, dalla ford che, anno dopo anno, divenne una grande potenza industriale. Alla fine del 1913, la casa produceva la metà delle automobili degli Stati Uniti e per far fronte alla domanda, Ford dette il via alla produzione di massa nella sua fabbrica, cercando di risparmiare i tempi morti. Ford pensò che se ogni lavoratore fosse rimasto in un posto assegnato, con uno specifico compito, anziché spostarsi da una sezione all'altra, l'auto sarebbe stata costruita in tempi più rapidi. Per verificare questa teoria, nell'estate del 1913 un telaio fu trascinato con una corda lungo il pavimento dello stabilimento in Michigan. nacque così la moderna catena di montaggio e Alla fine, le Model T uscivano dalla linea di assemblaggio ad un ritmo molto più elevato di prima. Con la nuova produzione si raggiunse ben presto la cifra record di 10 milioni di ford T realizzate e la Ford fu costretta a costruire stabilimenti più grandi, in grado di rispondere al numero sempre crescente di ordinazioni. Ford aumentò in modo sensibile i salari, convinto che anche l'operaio che l'aveva costruita, doveva aver le possibilità economiche di comprare la propria T. Nel 1919 Edsel Ford, figlio di henry divenne presidente della società e tre anni dopo fu assorbita dal gruppo la Lincoln, casa specializzata nella produzione di auto di lusso.

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Harry Fisher In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice" car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well... above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the baddest hot-rods around.





1968 Buick Riviera Custom Orng Windermere022313
This handsome Riviera has been tricked out with induction parts from a Skylark. There was no GSX Riviera, but if they had made one, this is what it probably would have looked like. The Riviera surely was a luxury performance car..and a few more performance parts would have not been amiss. Methinks Buick missed an opportunity that this owner has realized. Notice the action of the vacuum operated headlamps...initiated by turning on the headlight switch.
