Buick celebrated its 110 year birthday last month. Being the longest running, still active American car company gives Buick one incredible decorated past. To celebrate Buick's 110th Anniversary, General Motors Co. recently
released 11 models that have defined the brand’s 11 decades. Ferguson Buick GMC would like to help celebrate Buick's 110 birthday by sharing this list with you, and looking briefly at the founding of Buick.
Buick was founded by David Dunbar Buick. David was born in Arbroath, Scotland and moved to Detroit at the age of two. Buick started the Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company in 1899, at a time when people were still referring to automobiles as horseless carriages. David hand-built the first Buick in a small barn behind his home. Half a decade later GM Motors was founded. “(Buick) actually spurred the creation of General Motors and the purchase of Oldsmobile, Cadillac and Oakland, which later became Pontiac,” said Greg Wallace, manager and historian of the GM Heritage Center.
Like GM, Buick has also been a major corner-stone for our dealership. Ferguson added the Buick franchise in 1996, marking the beginning of Ferguson Buick GMC. Buick's past can be summed up in three words; consistency, longevity, and reliability. Today the company produces some of the most luxury cars and SUVs on the market, and we here at Ferguson Buick GMC are proud to offer the Buick Experience to Tulsa, Broken Arrow, and all of Oklahoma.
