    I think I once read that David Buick was a plumber that created a great, really high horsepower 1 cylinder engine out of toilet parts. Billy Durant really liked the Buick and (Louis) Chevrolet names, and bought those guys out to start GM. This was back when GM meant General Motors, long before the day of Government Motors. Keep up the great work on this blog site. I really enjoy reading it!

Let me hear from you!!! Drop a note!!
