A Place Called Buick, Second Edition

In 2003, I set out on a mission to document the history of the Buick site in Flint, Michigan - from its' origins in 1900 through modern day. As a GM employee at "The Buick", I had unique access to the records of the site. After a great deal of research, and with help from other historians and numerous other employees, the two years of work was finally pulled into a complete book.

The result was the book "A Place Called Buick". The original book went to print in 2005, and the initial large printing sold-out quickly. In fact, the hardcover version sold-out almost immediately.

After the initial book went to print, I continued to receive a great deal of information from fellow Buick enthusiasts, and for the last few years, since the original sol-out, I continued to get requests for copies of the book.

To continue to document and share the history of the great Flint site, I have carefully put together this LIMITED PRINTING, SECOND EDITION. This edition has been expanded to 238 pages (over 60 pages more than the first edition), and is only available in hardcover.

This book looks at additional information for World War I, Site Centennial information, updates from the last five years, a closer look at the plants that were built before "The Buick", and additional quotes from employees. I am also pleased to include a summary of all site plans (maps) at the end of the book. There are many more photos, larger photos, and clarified information.

With a very low print quantity, color photos throughout, and more pages in each book, I searched to find a high-quality printer who could offer a price on full-color hardcover books that could keep the selling price reasonable.

I am pleased to be able to offer this expanded book for only $45 - which is only a few dollars more than the original hardcover version, but also includes 60 more, and is a Limited Printing. At this time, this book can only be purchased directly from the author. Shipping will be $3 in the U.S. We accept check, money order, and PayPal.

There has been a great deal of work that has gone into both editions of this book, and although it has been rewarding, I have no plans to do another printing or edition. Many, many people were not able to get a copy of the original book, so when this printing runs out, there will be no more.

When ordering, please let me know if you would like the book personally signed before sending out. If no direction is sent to sign the book, it will be sent unsigned.

Please feel free to email with any questions, or for photos of the book.

Thank you for your interest in that great manufacturing site known as A Place Called Buick.

If your location is correct in Poland, shipping would be $21.88 USD, for a total of $66.88 USD.

The least expensive option that I have found to ship to Austrailia is $21.13 through the US Postal Service. This would be a total of $66.13 US Dollars. I thought that I found a less expensive option, but the book will not fit in a smaller envelope. (The book is is about 11.5" x 9", and reasonably thick - weighs in at about 2-1/2 lbs).

I am willing to look at less expensive options if anyone has recommendations.

If you prefer, I can ship to your U.S. Address.

Thank you,

Don Bent
