    Default Buick on a trip around the world

    I received this original article from a 1925 Dutch newspaper today, telling the readers about a Buick that was undertaking a trip around the world.


    Arrival of the Buick in the port of Amsterdam.

    The article says that the official Dutch importer of Buick motor vehicles, one mister C.F. Bakels, was driving the first leg of the world tour on the European continent from Amsterdam to Brussels, Belgium. Here he would hand over the Buick to the Belgian Buick importer. In this way the Buick was driven all over the world. Who knows a little bit more about this world tour of Buick?
