Scott Oldham recalls his GNX driving experience and being the first to be involved in a GNX fender bender. That’s something he’ll never forget. Neither will I.
In 1987 I handled media relations for Buick on the east coast, wrote the BUICK GNX book that went with each of the 547 GNXs and had #002 in my New York City press fleet. The first media loan went to Joe Oldham at Popular Mechanics magazine, and son Scott, later to become a respected member of the automotive media community, borrowed it to drive to a friend’s house. In the process he got rear-ended while stopped at a traffic light. It was the first GNX to be involved in an accident and both his late Dad, Joe, he and I never forgot it.
