1918 McLaughlin Buick

It was advertised as “Canada’s Standard Car” and often used for family road trips, but in Crowsnest Pass the McLaughlin was associated with rum-running and murder. Alberta’s most famous bootlegger, Emilio Picariello, used a fleet of McLaughlin-Buicks (whisky sixes) to transport illicit liquor from British Columbia into Alberta and Montana during Prohibition. After “Emperor Pic” and his female partner in crime were convicted of shooting a police officer, the McLaughlin became an icon in Albertan history.
