Closeup of factory #10, #05 and #36.
Closeup of freeway construction.
An aerial view from the east towards Buick looking over the old Buick Heights. The I-475 freeway business loop through Flint is just being constructed.
A typical neighborhood before Urban Renewal. This is the old intersection of St John Street and Oakland Street (now Leith St.) looking east towards the Flint river. James P. Cole blvd. was rerouted as shown below. That is the Fairview school shown at the upper left. The future Buick #07 powerhouse would be built at the north-west intersection shown here.
See Easy Street on the map below.
July 26, 1917.
The address for Fairview school shows 1300 Leith Street but in 1915 this street was still known as Oakland.

|Here I am in a 1917 Buick and if I was any fatter I wouldn't fit. 'I have since lost that extra weight'.|
|This is the M-18 Tank I seen at Buick's 100th birthday running around at Bishop airport.|
|Here is a large dealer neon sign.|
|Here is an original wood and clay mock up for the 1939 Buick. It is rather large. My daughter's reflection in the case gives an idea of size.|
|This is one of the workshops at the Buick Gallery in Flint. When I was there on April 15, 2008 they were still working on the body of the 1953 Skylark. You can see the Buick Bug with it's hood removed and also a Whiting automobile.|
