History--Built in Flint,Michigan in July, 1937, this car has a long time history in and around Goshen, Indiana. The engine (71,600) was rebuilt in the early 80's as was the completion of any body and paint work. The car received a new fuel pump, radial tires and tubes in 1982. The steering wheel was also restored with a leather grip. In 2005, the car was sold to a buyer in Clio, Michigan. In 2010, the vehicle was sold again--to my father who resides in Clio, Michigan. Condition: The car is in original condition. The numbers on the engine and frame are matching. All chrome is in very good condition. The headliner is in good condition. The interior has never been restored. There is "wear" on the seats and at the bottom of each door panel. The carb was rebuilt in 2010. All guages (except the radio) work. The exterior paint job looks good. The car was repainted years ago (don't know exact date). There are 2 small dings in the right front fender as well as a small scratch. All Windows work. An original "VOTE FOR ROOSEVELT sticker" is in the rear window. All lights (head, fender, and fog) work. The fender lights have been converted to directional signals. The car possesses a heater, but the owner does not know if it works. In 2010 while returning home from Back to the Bricks (Flint, Mich.), the owner outran a rain storm by traveling 75 mph. and there was room for more speed. The 3 speed transmission and 4 wheel hydrolic brakes work well. The horns work well. The parking brake has never been tested. There is a spare tire, but the vehicle does not have a jack. It also comes with reprints of the owner's manual and shop manual. Payment: Deposit of $500.00 within 24 hours of auction close. Full payment required within 7 days of auction close. Shipping: Buyer is responsible for vehicle pick up or shipping. For the record, the 1937 Roadmaster Series 80 had 3 classifications of cars: the 37-80C which was a convertible Phaeton--trunk in back; the 37-81, a 4 door sedan with the trunk in back; and the 37-81F, a 4 door formal sedan with the trunk in back.

Earlier this month, Shanghai GM gave us a glimpse of the production version of the Buick Envision concept revealed at the Shanghai Motor Show back in 2011. And now it's released the first unveiled shot and initial details of the crossover to slot in the considerable gap between the Encore and Enclave.

The new Envision is set later this year to reach Chinese showrooms, where it will be called the Ang Ke Wei, after which we're expecting it to arrive Stateside. The production-ready Envision is about the size of the Chevrolet Equinox or GMC Terrain, but is differentiated by a more upscale treatment and Buick's signature waterfall grille, flanked by Xenon headlamps and LED running lights and riding on 19-inch wheels.
Power comes from GM's familiar 2.0-liter turbo four with direct injection and stop/start ignition, driving 256 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque through a six-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels. That's about all that GM's Chinese operation has announced at this point - it's not even clear what platform the vehicle is on - but you can check out the press release for yourself below.
"This is just silly," I said as I laughed my way sideways around the icy track at Circuit ICAR, a racecourse, drag strip and kart track at the Montreal-Mirabel International Airport in Quebec. It wasn't the activity that had me cracking up, though. After all, winter driving experiences aren't uncommon in this business.

No, in this particular case, it was the car that had me chuckling. I wasn't in a mad hot hatch or a rally-derived rocket - I was in a Buick. The 2014 Regal GS, to be more precise. Somehow, despite its recent product renaissance (not to mention its distant - yet storied - history of performance models), I was having a hard time believing that this attractive, turbocharged, all-wheel-drive sedan sliding around the Great White North could possibly be wearing a Tri-Shield badge on its nose.
But it was, and slide about it did. While having access to a vehicle in this setting is fairly rare, what's rarer is the fact that I've had so much exposure to it. In Mr. Ewing's recent Volkswagen Golf R drive story, for instance, his ice capades were his first experience with the new model. In my case, though, I was lucky enough to first test the refreshed Regal GS for a week back in December before flying to Quebec to drive it on the snowy, icy, winding roads of Canada's most fiercely independent province and on the track at Mirabel.
Buick teased the arrival of the China-market Envision last month and gave us a few specs, now it's teasing the midsize crossover's interior and features. Having said it will "set a new benchmark in terms of space, safety, performance and specifications," we're told that equipment like the heated leather steering wheel and Bose-sourced active noise cancellation are market firsts in the segment.
Elsewhere, light will shine on occupants through the panoramic roof during the day and via ice blue ambient lighting at night, and seating surfaces are being shown off with dual-stitched leather. Lane departure warning and parking assist help keep the bodywork in order, stop/start ignition fitted to the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder with 256 horsepower and 260 pound-feet will help keep fuel economy up. One more convenience for the model's core buyers: a tailgate that can be partially opened.
The Normal, Tour, Sport and Off-Road driving modes come courtesy of FlexRide, that last one - meant for extra-light-duty dirt work, naturally - appearing on a Buick for the first time.
