At the tail end World World I, Americans jumped on the road and began camping out of their cars, adding tents, beds and cooking facilities to their cars. RV camping equipment became a market of its own. As early as 1920, RVers would camp in uncomplicated wooden house structures that they would build at home and attach to their model T’s.

Auch 1957 gab es Probleme. Das neue Styling f r dieses Jahr wurde von Vielen als nicht besonders gelungen bezeichnet. Die dreigeteilte Heckscheibe stie auf besonderen Abscheu! Ein H ndler, der aus Kalifornien gekommen war um die neuen Modelle zu sehen, riet nach seiner R ckkehr allen seinen H ndlerkollegen: “Kauft jeden Gebrauchtwagen den ihr kriegen k nnt, denn die werden die einzigen Fahrzeuge sein die ihr heuer verkaufen k nnt!” Auch die Bremsen, deren Qualit t bei Buick immer ein Verkaufsargument darstellten, waren seit Mitte der F nfzigerjahre durch ein mangelhaftes Gussverfahren bald als die schlechtesten verrufen.
