In Flint, Mich., the name Roadmaster means a lot. It conjures up memories of the post-World War II boom years, of portholes on cars, of massive vertical-bar grilles and of hardtop convertibles.The Roadmaster -- which has been revived and is being produced by Buick at the General Motors assembly plant in Arlington, Texas -- is a name from days gone by.It is a flashback to an era when it was taken for granted that American car buyers would drive home anything Detroit's automakers put into showrooms.

Here's a big question: When does old age begin? Will 30 years do it? Is being 50 and the holder of an AARP card with senior discounts enough? Both would be wrong guesses. Until recently, I hadn't thought much about it. Yet, I got the answer to this eminent question without asking. A while ago, I saw my physician for a semi-annual examination and health review. Near the end of our meeting, the doctor declared for the record that I had arrived at old age. Crash the cymbals and blare the trumpets!

Samuel J. Zito, a sprightly centenarian who had operated Zito Buick Services in Baltimore for 40 years, died of respiratory failure Friday at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. He was 100. Mr. Zito, a 51-year resident of East Lake Avenue who would have been 101 next month, was born in Baltimore. One of seven children of Italian immigrant parents, he was raised on Pennsylvania Avenue, where his father owned a confectionery and fruit store. His entrepreneurial instincts began early, when he was delivering newspapers at the age of 6. He swept the floors of a barbershop after school for 50 cents a week, and as a 14-year-old delivered singing telegrams for Western Union.

For Greg Hudnet, being a Ravens superfan is all about the car. Not just any car, but a purple-and-black '52 Buick that Hudnet - aka Birdman - drives to every home game. Decked out with the Ravens logo, customized inside with the autographs of some 50 Ravens and Colts players, his car has become a crowd-pleaser of the first order. And even though Hudnet dresses up like a bird for every game and helps keep his fellow fans in Section 531 pumped, the retired firefighter acknowledges the car is far more famous than he is. "It's just become so popular, it's unbelievable," says Hudnet, 63, who lives in Parkton with his wife of 42 years, Linda.

I think after Hurricane Sandy and then the election, I'm going to be OK. Many are stressed out right now and I think these two events are the cause. My wish is that when the election is over, regardless of the results, we may learn from the past two years of negative campaigning and our country return to the process of government in cooperation, community and trust. We have become a society of "I win, you lose" or a bloodbath to the finish line with an application of hate. The division and austere language, the bickering and lame-duck results of our Congress did not exist "then" to the degree as it does "now," neither were citizens of the United States taught to hate fellow countrymen because of their political affiliation.

This month, beleaguered General Motors announced that after 83 years, it was finally eliminating its Pontiac division in hopes of averting bankruptcy. This news catapulted me back to another time, when Pontiacs were Kings of the Road. I was also awash in Pontiac nostalgia because the first family car I really remember was a Pontiac. With the outbreak of World War II, automakers ceased production. With the return of peace, Americans were eager to take to the highways once again . The pent-up desire was fueled by cheap gas, big postwar salaries, and a desire to drive the fastest and most stylish models Detroit could provide.

Spring training is just kicking into gear, but baseball is not the only game in South Florida this time of year. In Palm Beach Gardens, less than an hour up Interstate 95 from the Orioles' training facility, is PGA National Resort and Spa, which will host the Honda Classic this coming week. In case you were wondering, Tiger Woods will not be there. He never plays the Honda - perhaps because he drives a Buick - but that just means one of your other favorite golfers will have a chance to win. My money's on defending U.S. Open champion Angel Cabrera.

SAN DIEGO -- Is there anything out there that can trip up Tiger Woods? Nothing in the past six months anyway, at least on the PGA Tour, once again zoned as Woods' personal playground, just as it has been since last July when he started a winning streak at the British Open that reached seven straight yesterday with his fifth victory overall, and third straight, at the Buick Invitational. Woods took the lead with six holes to go at Torrey Pines, wound up with a 6-under-par 66, nudged Charles Howell III by two shots, finished with a 15-under score of 273 and, as is his habit, dug deeper into the history books.

In the long, dubious history of celebrities shilling for products, one of the strangest pairings has to be Tiger Woods and Buick. Kirstie Alley shills for Jenny Craig and you think: OK, she let herself go a few years ago, gained all that weight, spoofed herself in that Fat Actress reality show, then turned to a well-known weight-loss program to slim down. Makes sense. Burt Reynolds appears in those "Man Laws" Miller Lite commercials and you think: Fine, aging macho actor with a bad hairpiece, had a big rep as a person who partied, still likes to kick back with a couple of cold ones.

LA JOLLA, Calif. -- Say what you will about Tiger Woods, but he knows how to win. The victories just arrive in different ways. Sometimes, he blows to victory with fury, sometimes he squirms his way to the top and other times victory falls in his lap. Yesterday at the Buick Invitational, Woods' 47th PGA Tour tournament title was gift-wrapped and specially delivered, when Jose Maria Olazabal missed a 4-foot putt for par on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff...
