This is Art Deco at its finest. Very rare 2 door fast back with Dynaflow transmission. I havent seen another one like this anywhere including an extensive search of the internet. You will occasionally find the 2 door out there but not with the dynaflow. This was the first year that they offered it and the only ones I have seen them in were the 4 door version. The car is an older restoration and is ready for someone to either restore it or make a sled head out of it. I recently had the oil changed and the brake cylinders replaced. The tires are very good. The gas tank does need to be cleaned. The paint on it is starting to peel. The interior was re-done in crushed velour and looks good if you think crushed velour looks good! The engine runs but lacks power. Not sure if its the carb or the head needs to be re-done. The car is complete! I even have a few extra trim pieces a radiator and a custom tow hitch in case you wanted to pull your old air stream or tear drop trailer around with you once you re-stored this beautiful car. I have the vehicle for sale locally and reserve the right to sale it as such. Shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer, however I will help out anyway that I can. PAYMENT: A non-refundable deposit of $500 is to be made within 24 hours of the end of the auction. The remaining balance is to be made within 7 days.
The 166 videos posted by YouTube music video maestro Kurt Hugo Schneider have been watched almost half a billion times. When Coke wanted to do something musically inclined and a little different, it called KHS, and the result was the video Little Talks.
Buick appears to be the next blue chip in line, and KHS' melodic celebration of the 259-horsepower Regal GS is called Epic Basketball + Car Beat. In it, a red Regal sits at center court in Venice Beach, California while a cast of ridiculous dribblers make music with and around the sedan.
We'll let the music speak for itself, which it does quite well in the video below.
Not Luxury. Not Sport. Not Buick. Not Bad.
Those of you who still think of the Buick Verano as some sort of callously badge-engineered, gussied up version of the Chevrolet Cruze ("Why would anyone spend that much money on Buick's Cruze?" you may have been heard to mutter) have got the wrong idea. Entirely. Even in its most modest form, the Verano turns out to be a sedan that is feature-rich, insulated from wind and road noise in proper luxury car fashion, pretty good to drive and not bad to look at in the new school of high-nosed pedestrian-impact-regulated fashion. In a less modest form then, one that attaches the word "Turbo" to the moniker and plops a force-fed 2.0-liter four-cylinder under the hood, the Verano is downright interesting.
Of course, "interesting" is rarely a descriptor that fills one with lust - and so it goes with this example. There are two competing forces within this near-premium subcompact sedan, and the balance struck between them must resonate with any potential customer before the Verano Turbo can become a serious purchase consideration.
When you think of daring concept cars or emotional design-student projects, Buick probably isn't the first brand that comes to mind. It's not for lack of concepts; when General Motors ran down 11 concept-car highlights from Buick's 110-year history, three of them are from the past 15 years, with other experiments in that same timeframe like the Black Hawk, Centieme and Cielo left unmentioned.
But the company still thinks about them even if we don't. It ran a contest for students at Detroit's College for Creative Studies to create a Buick for the year 2030 that would incorporate future materials and transportation needs, and nanotechnology.
Best exterior design went to Sam Kenny for his Neo Classical Buick, Justin Salmon took honors for innovative material use, like having exposed algae on the bodyshell to generate energy, and Namsuk Lee nabbed best overall concept and best interior for his Buick Vision Sedan. You can read more about the design challenge and winners in the press release, and hear students talk about what went into the work in the video below.
