The building is (was) Federal Screw Works in Chelsea, MI. I like old factories and stuff as I wonder what they were like in their prime, providing the locals with an honest living and all, the Detroit pictures are kind of apocolyptic.... more later though.

Car in field is a 40? Ford between Stockbridge and Chelsea, Mi

Oldsmobile has a Rocket v8, was sitting in someone's front yard forever, then I saw it at local pik-a-part in the lot, then behind this fence, then I guess it got ground up and sent to China. "nobody was interested in it" said the guy at the counter when I asked about it. Seems to me they should do better advertising on the old stuff they have. It's kind of a niche market, especially the old old stuff like Olds Rocket v8s and stuff.
