Buicks founder, David Dunbar Buick, was building gasoline engines by 1899, and his engineer, Walter L. Marr, built the first automobile to be called a Buick between 1899 and 1900. Buick recovered from near-bankruptcy in 1904 to become the No.1 producer of automobiles in 1908 --surpassing the combined production of Ford and Cadillac, its closest competitors. Buick became the financial pillar on which General Motors, today the world's largest car producer, was created. The post-war period was a great era for Buick in styling, engineering and sales.
