GM, Tiger Woods Limp Away From Endorsement Deal

Tiger Woods and GM will part ways after five years, a reported $40 million and a lot of Buick Enclave commercials » 11/24/08 12:30pm 11/24/08 12:30pm. The press release from GM goes out if its way to suggest any link to what's happening is "purely coincidental" so, you know, feel free to blame Tiger's knees instead. But it's weird to see GM claiming…

Broken: Buick Just Sold More Cars in China than in the United States of…

The old man used to go on and on about the glory of Grandpa Loverman's 1953 Buick Roadmaster. It was beautifully styled, possessed a powerful straight-eight, had advanced features like... wait for it... power door-locks! Best of all, it was called the frickin' Roadmaster! Car names don't get better than that. Neither,… » 12/20/06 5:45pm 12/20/06 5:45pm

Sweet Peet Has A Woodsy For GM's Buick Brand

Sweet Peet's got a new rant up this week, and in all the hoopla of the LA Auto Show, it's a shame it took us until now to notice it — especially because instead of a rant, it's a positively exuberant love fest for GM's blue-haired brand, Buick. Now I know China is Buick's big market, and the Enclave's some hot stuff —… » 12/01/06 9:10am 12/01/06 9:10am

Breaking? GM Has Enough Problems, Will Not Save Ford...Did We Mention…

A non-Jalopnik member of the press asked Rabid Rick if instead of merging with Carlos "Hot Daughter" Ghosn's lineup, why doesn't GM simply merge with — and save — FoMoCo? Mr. Wagoner literally answered, "We have enough problems. We will not be saving Ford." The General does sound like it's intent on saving Buick.… » 11/29/06 8:30am 11/29/06 8:30am

Not Out Of The Woods: Buick Continues The Lame-Ass Viral Marketing

Thank the lord of motor parts that we've got tipsters like Galvin Wong, a name at an empty and hastily created hotmail e-mail account. Without him, and folks like him, we'd have no way of getting amazing pictures of the tip of the headlight of the new Buick Enclave. That's right, despite finally getting "outed" by the… » 11/13/06 8:31am 11/13/06 8:31am

GM And Tiger Woods Engage In Viral Marketing Of The Lame-Ass Kind

The General's engaged in some lame viral marketing in the past — like when they tried to pretend cars and trucks were flying because of some silly warranty or something. Everyone knows that the cars were flying because of the secret alien-derived technology they and the feds have jointly developed out in the… » 11/09/06 9:50pm 11/09/06 9:50pm

Caption Contest: Tiger Woods And Buick Enclave, So Captioned Together


Although every entry fought hard for the chance to be Jalopnik's next top caption (soon to be a new Fox reality show), unfortunately, as in Highlander, there can be only one — at least until the sequel. It's therefore now our solemn duty to inform the world, and Buick PR man Dave Darovitz, that he should have used… » 9/20/06 11:08am 9/20/06 11:08am
