David Buick - Forgotten Inventor, Enduring Name

When David Buick died he was unknown by most in Detroit. He invented the valve-in-head automobile engine and created the Buick Motor Company. Money was a problem for his company and in turn it was bought by Flint Wagon Works and moved to Flint while Buick was forced to retire in 1910.
