Buick Roadmaster Convertible
Buick is one of the oldest automobile manufacturers, and celebrated its 100th birthday in 2003. For all but five of those years, Buick has been owned by General Motors.
In the early years, Buick's most popular model was the Model C, which made it a close second to Ford in the U.S. market. Buick is known for being innovative and has introduced lots of new features throughout the years, including electric lighting and starting, the straight-eight overhead valve unit, synchromesh transmissions, no-draft ventilation, independent front suspension, downdraft carburetion, and hydraulic brakes.
Buick introduced its first V8 in 1953, and was known for making large, powerful cars. But during the 1960s, Buick downsized, and began to introduce smaller cars. By the 1970s, most Buicks featured V6 engines. Sales crashed during the mid- to late 80s, but Buick did begin to recover in the 1990s when the Riviera, Regal, and Le Sabre entered the market. Today, Buick continues to sell larger cars that appeal to the more conservative market with both V6 and V8 engines. In addition to cars, Buick has entered the SUV market.
