The McLaughlin Buick Club Of Canada

Canada Oshawa, Ontario, Canada
(latitude: 44.047394, longitude: -78.797409)
 
 
 
 

In 1971 the City of Oshawa celebrated the 100th birthday of one of their greatest citizens. Robert Samuel McLaughlin, who was known as Sam had been instrumental in bringing General Motors to Oshawa. His father had moved his carriage business there in 1877 growing to become the largest carriage manufacture in Canada. In 1908 the McLaughlin car debuted with Buick engines and chassis. In 1915 The McLaughlin Motor Car Co. was sold to General Motors.

June 20th, 1971 was to be the big day. The members of the Canadian Automotive Museum were the driving force in arranging a parade: A parade of McLaughlin automobiles to file past Sam as he sat under the trees beside the driveway of his estate Parkwood. Over fifty McLaughlin and McLaughlin-Buick automobiles from as far away as Michigan and Montreal were assembled with almost every year of production was represented.

Once the tour past Sam had been completed the cars returned to the Canadian Automotive Museum to be placed on display for the general public. A small group discussed establishing an annual tribute to Sam and the McLaughlin automobile, leading to the formation of The McLaughlin Buick Club of Canada. Sam McLaughlin was awarded an honourary membership and given membership number one.
