This Detroit landmark is just as important as Tiger Stadium. While it is impractical to save the entire Packard complex, at least save this small part. Restore this bldg and turn it into a Packard museum showcasing some restored Packards and possibly a scale model of the Packard complex in its prime. The same effort should be made to restore the Ford Highland Park bldg fronting on Woodward Ave. The factory bldgs of both are beyond saving. At least save part of them. Detroit can't continue to ignore the importance of its past glory. Where is the Motor Cities Heritage group?
