BUIRE / France

LA BUIRE  ( 1904 - 1930) located in Lyon / France was a typical french car maker with local relevance only.
Nevertheless they exported quite a lot of cars to England.
The first  BUIRE cars had a brass emblem only (1904 - 1905 ).
Later there was a round enameled emblem on  the radiator showing the coat of armes of the town Lyon,  a  lion,  and the silhouette from an early automobile.
