The history of the Buick brand is almost a statement of the history of the American automobile industry.

Founder David Buick had to hang on tight in the early days as Buick rode the unpredictable roller-coaster of world events to become not only a pioneer, but a frontrunner of automotive manufacturing.

Along with Walter Marr, Buick built his first automobile in 1900. Horses were still the norm and most people were wary of making a speculative investment in automobile manufacturing. But enough cars were appearing on city streets by 1903 that several businessmen were keen to take the plunge. In 1903, Buick found a group of wagon makers in Flint, Michigan, willing to take the risk and buy his company...

The Angriest Buick Model

Road rage...

We've all had it. At one time or another, we've all found ourselves steaming mad behind the wheel. It can get ugly, but thankfully, we are tucked safely inside of our cars...where our tirades (and gestures) are not immediately noticed by other drivers.

Imagine for a second if your car had a personality of its own and threatened to blow a gasket because of other cars or drivers...

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with the 2013 Buick Verano, and I must admit the interview took some interesting, unexpected turns. That being said, with the 2013 Buick Verano's new handling capabilities, those turns were pretty smooth. The interview is just below.

How To VAPORIZE Ice From Your Vehicle


Winter is good for all sorts of transformations.

With that said, getting your car ready for winter can be a daunting task.

Gentle morning dew, for example, turns into tenacious ice.

The GMC Sierra vs. The Millenium Falcon: Which is better?


This may just be the most important showdown of your life.

First of all, the Millennium Falcon only comes in one color. Two, actually. It comes in its original grey color, and if you attract enough attention from the Empire, it might just turn a soot black from all of the laser blasts headed your way. The GMC Sierra, on the other hand, comes in a variety of colours straight from the factory.

Buick and the NFL: A Dave Arbogast Case Study

There is nothing more American than good old fashioned NFL Football. It seems that this time of year, football season, is a time when I relate almost everything on my mind into a football  analogy. It's natural. For example, my breakfast at the local roadside diner has decreased in quality for the last few months. They brought in a new cook and my diner has become very Detroit Lions like. It has...
