ALL THINGS BUICK

ALL THINGS BUICK jim yuill said...
This is a great pictorial visit to Buick in Flint, Mich. I've never viewed such a complete set of photos. While the plant, south of Leith St., is gone to the bulldozer operators, the North end was visible in 2005. Just nothing left while "progress" continues with the U.S. Automotive industry.It's hard to believe that 52 years ago, fresh out of High School I started there at $1.47 per hour and worked the 5:30 PM till 7:00 AM in the Cleaning Room inspecting Castings. Thirteen hours, 7 days a week was big money then. Bought a 1955 Chevy Bel Air hardtop fully loaded for $2358.
