Sloan-Longway Museum: Worth a Visit

1972 Buick SkylarkFlint, Michigan: The motherland of General Motors. In the 1960s, Flint could brag that it had the highest per capita income of any in the world, but this is no longer the case. There are a few remnants of the day, like the largest brownfield zone in the United States; this zone was once the flourishing Buick city plant.
