The sunlit ruins in the distance on the right are part of the old Packard assembly plant, where some of America's finest automobiles were built for more than half a century. On the left, automobiles deemed no longer fit for use are crumpled together in massive towers, many of them retaining some hint of the personalities of their previous owners: bumper stickers ("Out of a job yet? Keep buying foreign") and front plates promoting local sports teams or one's preference of fishing over one's current predicament. Between them: a dozen trailers advertising Toyota as the sun sets on the Motor City.
