At Weld County Garage Buick GMC, our Buick dealer serving Fort Collins, we’re proud of the rich history of the Buick name. Buick has been around since the early 1900s, with the first Buick debuting in 1903. By 1923, Buick had built its one-millionth vehicle – a great way to celebrate turning 20 years old! Later, Buick would celebrate its 50th anniversary by introducing the Roadmaster Skylark Convertible!
In 1942 in the midst of war, Buick dedicated itself to the war effort and built more than 2,500 M18 Hellcat tank destroyers. It’s safe to say that building these war performance vehicles had an affect on the brand; by 1961, Buick came out with its very first performance line featuring the Invicta. By 1976, the incredible performance capability of Buick vehicles was recognized as a Buick Century was chosen as the pace car for the 1976 Indy 500.
Today, Buick remains one of the most popular American automotive brands, and the 2014 model line up continues Buick’s reputation of providing premium vehicles to Fort Collins Buick shoppers. Whether you’re looking for a sophisticated sedan or SUV, you’re sure to find a Buick model that syncs up with your lifestyle.

In 1908, Weld County Garage opened its doors, becoming the first Buick dealership west of the Mississippi; back then, Buick’s most popular model was the Model 10. Upon General Motors being founded on September 16, 1908, Weld County Garage became known as a GM dealer. Soon after, GM purchased Reliance Motor Truck Company and Rapid Motor Vehicle Company, and the two merged to create GMC Trucks. By 1912, Weld County Garage was in the truck business!
Since then, our dealership has proudly been serving Greeley and the surrounding areas. Like Weld County, Greeley is filled with wonderful history. Under the streets of Downtown Greeley, there was an elaborate tunnel system that connected many of the buildings. During the Prohibition Era, these tunnels were rumored to have kept illegal liquor, but were sealed off in the early 1970s. Greeley was a dry city until 1969 – which we don’t think is any sort of coincidence.
Though the tunnels were sealed off, evidence remains of the illicit lifestyle that early Greeley residents enjoyed. Evidence of two speakeasies under the Greeley Chophouse and the Massage Therapy School has been found, and beckons the imagination.
Let your imagination run wild back to the time when speakeasies were in business; friends of Weld County Garage Buick GMC recently opened 1908 Speakeasy – a restaurant and bar. The atmosphere at 1908 Speakeasy will take you back to the Prohibition Era. Enjoy […]
