Anyone ever come across this font for download?

I found a font called Koloss which is real close but you have to pay for it at Font.com. I need to use it once so I can see paying for it if it was available some where else for free. I'd appreciate any leads to this.

Somewhere I have a CD from a Buick press kit that has a bunch of BUICK words, script and block letters on it. You can't separate the letters though. You'd have to take the script or lettering as a whole word, whatever is on the CD. I'll try and dig it up if that will do you any good. Attached is an example I got off the CD a long time ago. Steve

The website at SMACKBOMB.com has some automotive fonts, but not Buick. There might be some links at the top of the webpage that might lead to where you desire to go.

I also Googled and found www.signspecialists.com. In looking for "BUICK", it listed about 10 pages of various fonts and how they looked in "BUICK". I found a few that looked real close to the actual, but not an exact match. They've got lots of car decals and decals you can design yourself online. Might be an option?

In the world of fonts, there are many font website and each designer tends to have his own website and "own" fonts for sale. I was totally surprised when I started looking for a specific font! Much less that people were still designing new ones!!

In the world of automotive fonts, they can have subtle changes from decade to decade or new model to new model, yet appear to be reasonably "the same".

Enjoy!

I thought I recalled someone getting to the bottom of this and coming up with a Buick font or something very close. The style I am interested in is the original Buick font such as is in the logo

MrEarl,

On the left, 1914 (sorry to comment on the obvious). The right, 1926. That printer's block is Beeee-youtiful!

Do two things for me, OK?

One, you'll need to have your minions supply the circle, as Buick only used a rectangle.

Two, post my bail when the Trademark Police drag me away in chains to the hoosegow.

Much obliged,

TG

Seriously, as a registered trademark, the use of the Buick name and/or logos for commercial purposes without written permission is strictly <span style="font-style: italic">verboten</span>, by order of the High Command..."May I zee your paperz, pleaze?"

Okay MrEarl,

I'm stumped...would Jack Bower be the newest High Honcho at Buick? 'Cause my "Memorize the GM Hierarchy Game" ended when the Brand-Management Wienies took over. You know, when our beloved Marques went from being Motor Divisions to <span style="font-style: italic">Brands</span>, like Pampers, Ho-Ho's and Summer's Eve Douchebags.

Last I recall the Buick General Manager was named Fred Mertz, or Ned Gertz, or Jeezit Hertz...

something like that.

Clueless in Carolina,

TG

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> At the BCA National in Columbus in 1999, the attached apparition was displayed. It was (was) a pretty nice '67 Wildcat, that had been in a wreck just before the show. If memory serves, no one perished in the Buick, and it was there (supposedly) to raise the spectre of safe driving. Admittedly, all it did was make my skin crawl. There also was a plea for donations toward its rehabilitation. I thought at the time, and think to this day that it had no place being displayed within 50 miles of the show field, whether it was pre-registered or not. It should have been, and hopefully was soon afterward, consigned to the crusher.

Sure, grab the fender skirts, interior and exterior trim bits, any salvageable parts, but that's it! If I'd wanted to see wrecked Buicks and listen to tales of woe, I would've gone to my favorite junkyard, with an old George Jones cassette in my Walkman to keep me company. </div></div>

Original thread on this car from 2002. We were all a little less jaded back then.

David McKewans' web page on his car and accident.

I hope someone who knows what happened to Dave and his car can post it here.

On second thought I put the thread back to the top so it can be posted more appropriately.

I need to spell out "BCA Forum" with it. I don't mind paying a reasonable price for it if necessary.
