Singer Bob Seger’s New Single Based on Buick Vehicle
Over the years Michigan has been known for many great things. In addition to the automotive industry, one of those things is legendary musician Bob Seger. Here at Arnie Bauer we have more than a few employees who call themselves fans of the singer, so we were happy to hear that Seger’s new album contains a very special shout-out to a classic Buick automobile. Born in Lincoln Park, Michigan in May of 1965, Bob Seger has grown to become a globally renowned singer-songwriter, guitarist, and pianist. Seger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, and to date his list of accomplishments only continues to grow.
Regarded as a hometown hero in Michigan, Seger took advantage of his Michigan roots for his new song titled “Detroit Made”. The track is front and center on Seger’s new album, “Ride Out,” written by John Hiatt. The rock jam refers to the Buick Electra of “225,” the number coined from the 225-inch length of the vehicle (according to Sloan Museum curator Jeremy Dimick). In the lyrics of the song, Seger describes the classic Buick car with phrases like “chrome that takes the moonlight on,” and “she’s a Detroit made; deuce and a quarter babe.” Seger’s music video has a vintage wash giving it an older feel of years gone by. It features many scenes from the city of Detroit including the well-known Fillmore, Fox Theater, and of course plenty of classic cars of all makes and models.
The Electra was produced from 1959 to 1984 in Flint, Michigan and was one of many vehicles produced in the town since they started vehicle production way back in 1909.
