Classic Buick Wildcat

Classic Buick Wildcat

Buick WildcatOne vehicle that is of particular interest to many people who love Buicks of days gone by is the Buick Wildcat, a vehicle that became a model in his own right for the 1963 model year.

During the 1950s midsize cars were largely boxlike for want of a better description, and these classics are extremely cool in their own right so we are not taking anything away from them.

Buick RivieraThe Buick division of General Motors is one of the most important automotive manufacturing concerns that the world has ever known. The company dates all the way back to 1899 when it was known as the Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company. David Dunbar Buick incorporated the company as the Buick Motor Company four years later and the rest, as they say, is history.

As optimistic as David Dunbar Buick may have been when he started out in the automotive business even he would probably find it hard to believe that his surname would be gracing quality American motor vehicles for well over 100 years.

The Buick Century

The Buick Century

Throughout the history of auto making there have been a number of different models that have made multiple appearances after having been discontinued. One example of this would be the Buick Century, a car that was first introduced for the 1936 model year.

This was a very big year for the Buick division of General Motors. The company had been able to make a quantum leap forward on the engineering and design fronts and there was a lot of excitement about the 1936 offerings, including the brand-new Buick Century, a four-door sedan. These cars were very fast by the standards of the day, capable of speeds approaching 100 miles per hour. This oomph was generated by a 320 cubic inch in-line eight cylinder engine that was rated at 165 hp.

Buick CenturyIf you’re an old-school fan of true American classic cars you are well aware of the impact that Buick has had on the automotive industry over the years. And speaking of old-school, the Buick brand has been around longer than any other American nameplate and it is one of the longest standing automobile manufacturers in the world.

The company dates all the way back to 1899 when it was founded by David Dunbar Buick, a Scotsman, and called the Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company. A few years later it became the Buick Motor Company, but David Dunbar Buick couldn’t hold the reins and the company was acquired by James Whiting.
