My brother in law, a college student, is doing a photography project about Detroit's auto history. Other than the Model T building in Highland Park and the Piquette plant, what are some other good places. He wants to get some photos of some cool spots. I appreciate any help you can give. Thanks!

If you haven't noticed in the past year, there is an Old Car Thread, I'd suggest you check out that wealth of information.

Aside: I wanted to print out that thread to read at my leisure, it wasn't until page 23 I realized I hadn't formatted it correctly. Arggggggggg.
