It’s almost impossible to visit a car museum in the Detroit area without being reminded of Detroit’s role as the “arsenal of democracy” during World War II. Amidst the muscle cars, ’57 Chevy’s and pre-war classics you’ll find tank engines, bomber engines, PT boat engines, and military jeeps (by Ford and Willys). Chrysler built tanks in Warren, Ford built B-24 Liberators at Willow Run and even Nash built Sikorsky helicopters in their Kelvinator plant on Plymouth road. While we take this weekend to memorialize those American soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom let’s also honor our parents and grandparents who served from the home front.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
