Buick Town

September 22, 2008. This is the old Buick sign at the U.S.23 and I-75 interchange south of Bristol rd in Flint. In the old day’s, driving north you would see it lit up with huge red neon letters at the top saying “BUICK TOWN”

This is the matching “BUICK TOWN” billboard on (southbound) I-75 north of Flint. I took this photo April 15, 2008 while on my way to the Buick Research Gallery. These billboard’s were built in the early 60’s just after the freeway went through Genesee county. They let you know, with big letters what town you were entering. The only sign of Buick now is my hood ornament.
