Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.

I didn't have the chance or opportunity to run on a track with my muscle Buicks. Octane in my veins was satisfied on the streets of Flint. Oh my,no tickets or accidents for my foolish ways back then. The Grand Sport 455 hp with a stage one kit that boosted it another 16 hp was best Buick ever offered - off the track. A.J. Foyt drove for Buick in the sixties on the track and was pretty successful. There was one called a Rally, a limited production vehicle that could have probably whipped me.circa 69-70. Never had the chance to go against it.ReplyDelete
Just wanted to say thanks for the mention, Gordie and note that the site was written and researched by a Flint native (me in this case) with help from Buick enthusiasts in Flint.ReplyDelete
