Come Down to the Reynolds Open House Event to Celebrate Our 95th Anniversary!

We’re turning 95 soon! On Thursday, October 21st, Reynolds Buick GMC invites one and all to come down and have food and fun with us to celebrate our 95th anniversary. Come between 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and enjoy prizes and jazz music, as well food from an In-N-Out truck that’s catering the whole event. But that’s not all, Reynolds is proud to be able to feature not one, but TWO amazing classic Buicks at the open house, each with a long and detailed history.

The first is a 1965 Buick GS that has been completely restored by Jack Mancini, a Buick historian and car buff out of Rhode Island and a friend to the Reynolds family. Mancini has been meticulously researching the exact specifications of the 1965 Buick GS driven by Lennie “Pop” Kennedy and sponsored by Reynolds Buick GMC in the sixties in order to re-create the vehicle down to the last detail.

Remember, we said we’re featuring another classic Buick as well? This second Buick is being brought from Wisconsin because of its significance to the Reynolds family. While the car we mentioned above is a tribute to the original that was driven by Pop Kennedy, this Buick actually WAS driven by Kennedy himself, and made the quarter mile run in 10.89 seconds at 126.85 mph! This 1970 Buick GS 455, now owned by Guy Parquette, was once owned by Pete Reynolds. Pete Reynolds was once the proprietor of Reynolds Buick GMC, which is now owned and operated by his son, Don Reynolds.

So remember, be sure to come to Reynolds Buick GMC on October 21st from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. for delicious food, great music, outstanding prizes, and the chance to get to see two rare and classic Buicks on our 95th anniversary.
