    Looks like a place I used to pick up at in Cleveland. Both places look like they are just awesome places to visit

    Not yet. Would appreciate a source though if true or coming "down the pipe", my company uses them almost exclusively.

    Yeah, I mean the people there were nice. All 3 of them. Detroit sure is a sight though.

    Absolutely. Heading around back to that alley there was at least one other abandoned and dilapidated house and a couple lots down from that was just a lot entirely covered in rubble with nothing left standing.

    That is a sad sight, especially for guys who remember when the world's best cars were built there. Detroit, Cleveland, Pontiac, were all places where things were hopping, jobs and overtime were plentiful, and everybody could spend money knowing that things would only get better.

    Sad thing is, one of the richest man in Mi. owns a lot of those run down properties and won't fix them up or tear them down.
    He's the same guy who owns the Ambassador Bridge. Him and the city are always in court over those properties...

    Yea, my Dad's family is from the Detroit area. My Grandfather worked at Ford as a tool and dye man. Other family members worked at various other things.
    One great uncle even worked for Noaa
