reynolds racers return

Been busy this month assisting an old friend with a very fun project. Rather than delve too deeply into explaining things, I'll just let the press release take over:

Before I do, I'd like to point out that for a dealership to remain in the same family for 95 years with the same franchise alignment and to celebrate their 50th anniversary in the same location is pretty darn rare, especially in Southern California where dealers come and go at a frantic pace. Oh, and to celebrate, they've invited back a couple of historic racing cars which they owned and raced back when they were new. So let me offer my congratulations to Don and the whole Reynolds family. Stop by if you're in LA on Thursday.


Reynolds Buick-GMC-Isuzu will be celebrating its 95th Anniversary with a very special Open House featuring music, prizes, In-N-Out burgers, and two very special guests- legendary Reynolds Buick race cars which will be returning for the event.

Come see the actual 1970 Reynolds Buick GS 455 Stage 2 race car that was feared by all who raced against it. This is the actual car and is restored to the exact specifications of when Pete Reynolds. Pop Kennedy and Jim Bell ran 10.89 at 126.85 MPH. The car is owned and restored by Guy Parquette of Wisconsin.

Also Jack Mancini of Rhode Island is bringing his 1965 Reynolds Buick GS tribute race car to our Open House. This beautiful car recently went through a complete ground up restoration and is an exact replica of the '65 GS that Reynolds Buick raced. These cars are a must see and will not be back in California any time soon!
