Buick Car model kits.

David Dunbar Buick was actually a plumber - and porcelain bathtubs was one of his most successful products he invented.

Eventually he started another company and made engine parts for marine manufacturers.

In 1903 he started the Buick car company.

By 1905 they produced over 700 cars a year.

By 1908 Buick was so successful they were making over 8000 cars a year - a close second place to Ford.

Around 1910, Buick began buying other car companies.

This was a time when Buick combined with Oldsmobile, and General Motors was born.

In the early 1940s Buick was making engines with as much as 165 horses. Eventually Buick stopped making cars and started making Pratt & Whitney aircraft engines for the war effort.

By 1946 Buick was back to making cars. In 1947 they introduced their Dynaflow, an automatic trasmission.

1949 brought new car designs, including the traditional "portholes" in the sides of the hood (and later-fenders).

In 1955, the one millionth Buick rolled off the assembly line.

Although Buick has been rumored to be another discontiued car maker over the years, they still offer new cars in 2022.

Some of your favorite Buicks from the luxury Electra 225s to the one of the quickest production cars - the Buick GNX.

Buick has been a name for luxury cars for many years.

The Buick Rivieras were popular, especially the models with hideaway headlights. Who can forget the Riviera in Roadhouse, that one he buys off a used car lot near the beginning of the movie??

Many Buicks are a top choice for customs and lowriders starting in the 1950s, and are still coveted today with their unique styling.

But when the muscle car years came around, Buick went big with the GSX and Wildcat names.

Sporting a 455 V8 engine it had pleanty of horsepower and plenty of torque to get the job done, both on the street and the track.

Later in the 1980s, Buick begain using Turbos on their Buick lines such as the Gran Nationals and later GNX verion. Both having a potent Buick V6 hooked up with a Turbo.

Many think the Turbos were new to Buick with the 1987 Gran National, but Buick had offered Turbos on their Regal line cars as far back as 1978.

When the Gran Nationals came around they had SFI (sequential fuel injection) and computers which made the engine more efficient and offered more horsepower than ever before.
