This is in San Francisco during 1920. I wonder if this is the missing car that Louis Chevrolet drove “or” Bill Burman’s auto?

This photo of the Buick Bug shows A.C. in the background in 1971.This view from the Main Office parking lot is facing southeast.

I made this rough overlay just to show the relative position of the A.C. factory in conjunction with the Buick factories along Industrial Avenue. The A.C. plant was built on either side of Industrial with bridge’s connecting the east and west wings. This view is facing northeast. I don’t remember when the A.C. plant was demolished but it was still there in the early 70’s.
