Fixed! I Hope. :)
Sorry Ive been away so long... been hard at work and not hard at play.

A bug has been fixed in the site and you should not see the errors every second or third click. Hopefully this is a thing of the past.

For those Horseless Carriage/Pre War Buick Guys.... Have you joined the BCA Pre-War group?

Check out the updated Models Section. We will soon have the only source of data on every pre 1929 Buick all in one location. To start, all models will be entered with minimal data as found in the Handbook of Gasoline Automobiles. More data may be added if interest builds.

A request for the complete 1929 Marvel Carburetor manual was made. It is now online inthe Manuals section. Any other requests?

The Walter L. Marr family has provided some interesting Early Buick literature. They have been very interested in the Early Buick years as Walter Marr was the Lead Engineer for Buick and was responsible for most of the engineering and major componentry. In addition, this is one of the only places to learn about the Marr Autocar. Pictures and Literature are now posted.

In addition, new documents in the History section show potential patent infringement by both Ford and Buick for the use of the Planetary Transmission. Compliments of the Ball family. Check those out! Go to the Links section and learn more about Fredrick Ball and his Ball Car.

Also recently uploaded are early buick history and production engine/frame/serial numbers from 1904 to 1919. Another document includes pricing from 1905 to 1926 on open cars. Check that out in the History Section, last page.

Thank you all for the support you have given to me and my family during this past year. The 1904 Buick seemed to be a hit with those who saw it. The next showing will have my 1905 with it and will be 2 of the most authentic 2 cylinder buicks around.

For all you vendors, this would have not been possible without all of your hard work. This is a huge team effort that really paid off.

A special thanks goes out to Ken MacKinnon and his wonderful family for welcoming me into their home during this time and helping out with the project. If it was not for the support of the MacKinnon family I may have given up long ago.

An additional thanks goes out to Slims Body Works for doing such a great job on the paint. They allowed me to work in their shop and assemble the car over the past several months. If you ever need any paint work for either Classic or Rods, See Slims in Freeland Michigan (contact me for details)

Another vendor who did an amazing job is Mike Kovac from Winko Woodworks. He handled the steering wheel and coil box which really added the finishing touch to the car.

I know I have missed a few folks, but an article will be written to thank ALL and describe the work performed.

Dont Forget, we still speak 1929 Buick here too!
