Each year, hundreds of vintage Buicks converge on Factory One as the Buicktown Chapter of the Buick Club of America hosts an annual show on the " other bricks" of Water Street, the historic site where General Motors began in Flint. There, in the old Durant-Dort headquarters, now a National Landmark, Billy Durant and his partner, J. Dallas Dort began manufacturing the carriages that made Flint “The Vehicle City,” and center of the infant automotive industry. It was Durant's involvement with the Buick Motor Company that became the launching pad for GM. Visitors who make the short walk to Water Street can see for themselves the virtual birthplace of General Motors, listen to the stories of GM’s founding fathers, and be amazed by the cars that made Flint famous.
