The Pick of the Day is a handsome antique from the Brass Era

The Pick of the Day, a 1908 Buick Model 10 roadster, was produced at a critical time in American automotive history.  This was the year that Billy Durant established General Motors, with Buick at its financial core.

It also was the year that Henry Ford rolled out the Model T, the mass-produced flivver designed to be affordable for average folk, and which first put America on wheels.  That pretty much changed everything in what has become known as the Brass Era.
