Bold Moves - Bringing Buick to Flint

As the regions forests had been depleted, the lumber company of Begole, Fox and Company reinvented itself as the Flint Wagon Works and in 1903 purchased the Buick Motor Company of Detroit. With the help of the Durant-Dort Carriage Company, Mr. Buick organized one of the oldest car companies in North America, Buick Motor Company.
