>>""Years ago they used to call someone a mechanic if they had a screwdriver and a pair of pliers. Today, everything is computerized. You can't work on a modern car without a computer.""<<

Sad.

>>"Geise Buick was launched at a time when automobiles were far simpler and the number of makes and models was a fraction of what's available today."<<

The opposite is true- there were a far greater number of makes back when they started thru the '20s than now- the comparison is not even close.

Sounds like some missionary work for you know who is called for.

Please no. I'd rather argue with you over minutae in 20 threads simultaneously. :AH-HA_wink:

Ha ha - How can anyone argue with one that claims to be "the light, the way and the truth."

Last time I heard that proclaimed there was a crucifixtion involved!

With him, I know it is tempting ...

If there is a newer, nicer dealership down the street, why keep the crappy old one around?

Because sometimes 'newer' IS 'crappier' and sometimes history & tradition are worth preserving.

The main thing that surprised me was the newspaper website was called 'The Whig'. Wasn't that a political party from the 19th century? That's really old school....

Notice the author has his email address attached to the article. Maybe the NY Times will catch on.

The dealer has been open 100 years.

I wouldn't read much into it. There's more to the story than you see in print I'm sure. The grandson is the general manager AND they claim the operation was profitable so why not sell to the grandson? Something doesn't add up.

Very sad to hear, hopefully this doesnt foreshadow Buick's future.
