  1. Will the better Buick please stand up? "Since 1989, Toyota's Lexus ES sedans have been raking in gigantic piles of crispy green cashola by employing an absurdly elementary tactic: simply becoming Japan's Buick. You see, Buick's once colossal sales volume hasn't so much evaporated since its halcyon days as it's been incrementally hijacked by a Lexus that's consistently been offering Buick-to-the-bone qualities -- most notably relaxed quietness -- conjoined with Japanese quality." In the end, Buick wins... by a nose. To read the entire article, click here

  3. What is yours?

    First, I guess I'd have to say a 1969 Mercury Cougar convertible. A co-worker of my Father's had an all-white one (white body, white top, whitewalls and wire wheels) at the time it was new. I thought it was sharp. I also personally like the big, stylish early '60s Mercs (though not as much as GM's stuff, of course LOL). I recently got my Mother all 6 (so far) of the complete seasons of "Hawaii 5-0" on DVD. I watched a few episodes first and in one, the Mercury logo on the hood of Jack Lord's 1968 car was actually taped over with black tape. Then, in other episodes, it was clearly visible. I also watched one of the later episodes, where he was given a newer Mercury ('74?-'75?), and they showed a lack of continuity by using clips of McGarrett's old Mercury racing to some scene, even though he was now driving the newer one. Lastly, as a kid, I had a green "Matchbox" of a '68 Mercury wagon LOL

  5. New Buick Excelle sedan spotted out

    From China Car Times, here are some more pictures of the new Chinese Buick Excelle sedan. Maybe it's the gray-ish color of the body, rather than white, but in my opinion, they look pretty good; I particularly like the proportions of the photo in the bottom right.

  11. Henderson resigns as GM CEO

    I had been hoping he would be the new General Manager of Buick-GMC. But the whole enchilada is fine, too
  12. I think if the grille would extend into the hood slightly, like the NA Regal's does, it would look better. (Instead of having the hood, some blank metal, then the grille.)
  13. "Buick Excelle Hatch - The big picture!" China Car Times, Nov. 24, 2009 "The Buick Excelle hatch is some serious direct competition to the recently launched VW Golf, and with it being available in hatchback and sedan form, GM might be able to keep up the fight against its largest competitor in the PRC." For the complete story, including 13 pictures, click here.
