Buick built the anniversary edition 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible to show that they could. In its day it was the luxury car fantasy dream.

Auburn "bet the barn" on sweeping the market by putting their 12 cylinder engine in their cars to outdo Ford's V8s. Here is a 1933 Auburn Twelve Custom Phaeton Sedan that was offered in the Worldwide Auction. The 12 cylinder models never sold as well as Auburn thought they would. But the remaining Auburn Twelves are collector treasures.
