1911 Buick Model 32 news, pictures, and information
The Buick Motor Car Company was started in 1903 by David Buick, a Detroit plumber who had developed a method of affixing porcelain to cast iron, and thus, gave the world the white porcelain bath tub. The Buick Motor Car Company became the base that William 'Billy' Durant used to start General Motors in 1908.
The Buick race team, which included 'Wild' Bob Burman and Louis Chevrolet, competed in virtually every form of racing and won more than 500 trophies from 1908 to 1912. In 1909, a Buick even raced an airplane and won. Two Buicks ran in the very first Indianapolis 500 held in 1911, but neither car finished the race.
