Legend of Buick - Part 2 (1998)
Here's a great video produced in 1998 by General Motors Communications Support Group for Buick Communications. Written and directed by author/biographer Lawrence R. Gustin (one of the very few writers active today who extensively interviewed people close to the founder of General Motors, William Durant, and who also has a very rich background in researching and presenting Buick history), this video presents a detailed walk through the history of Buick from its early roots with David Dunbar Buick, all the way through to the late 90s. Narrated by Bill Harris, you'll enjoy a wide collection of Buick memorabilia including photos, newspaper articles, and film clips. (Video is presented in two parts.)
1987 Curbside Chat with Ed Mertz (Number Two)
This rare video, number two (2) of a multi-tape VHS series, presents a “Curbside Chat” with then General Manager of Buick Motor Division, Ed Mertz. Ed joined GM in 1960 as an Engineer and ran Buick from 1986 until his retirement in 1994. Buick distributed these tapes to the broad dealer base once every four-to-six weeks or so. In this Number 2 tape in addition to a report on Buick’s current sales status for the Summer of 1987, Ed presents several of the “new” fall Marketing plans for Buick including sneak-previews of Buick’s new television commercials and ads for the upcoming model year.

The History of Cadillac
In my multimedia authoring class at Northcentral Technical College I created a media rich presentation using Microsoft Powerpoint 2010. The assignment was to creat a presentation in which I am knowledgable of and interested in. Since I own a 1979 Eldorado that I am in the process of restoring I decided to create the presentation around that idea.
