Buick Motor Company
The Buick Motor Company was founded by Scotsman David Dunbar Buick in Detroit, 1903, but it dated back to its manufacture of internal comustion engines and motor cars from 1899. Buick didn't stay long as James H. Whiting took over the Buick Motor Company later in 1903, moved it to Michigan and brought in William C. Durant to run it in 1904. Durant formed General Motors as a holding company for Buick in 1908, and in 1909 brought in Oldsmobile, Cadillac and other now extinct brand names. However Durant was booted out of General Motors Company in 1910, going onto start up Chevrolet and then using this to outsmart the GMC board and regain control of it as the General Motors Corporation in 1916. Cadillac was promoted as the top brand with Buick just below. Although Durant wanted the brands within GM to share technology and components, Buick did achieve a measure of independence and debuted its first straight-eight engine in 1931, and its first V8 in 1953.

Larger engined Buicks were given 4 VentiPorts whereas less models only got 3.
