Cars before World War One

Buick Motor Division is one of the oldest automobile brands in America. It was founded in 1899 in Detroit by David Buick. First cars were made in 1899 and 1900, though full-scale automobile manufacturing was launched only by 1904. For four years the company has been increasing the number of cars produced annually from 37 to 8800 cars in 1908. The Buick’s history is closely connected with other famous brands. For instance, William C. Durant, the founder of General Motors, was a general manager in Buick Motor Division and his friend, Louis Chevrolet, was a racing driver here while he learned how to design cars. This photograph collection was composed of the Library of Congress images and covers the period from 1907 to 1985.
