I just thought I would share these pics I took today. My cousin recently purchased the Fleetwood Autobodies building that was used from 1909-1930. From what I understand the Fisher brothers owned it and used to hand form auto bodies there until the work moved to Detroit. I haven't looked into the rest of the history yet but the Fleetwood Historical Society has a bunch of info. According to them Cadillac carried on the "Fleetwood" name in honor of this place. I went looking around for any good collectibles, but my cousin says the last owners donated all the leftovers to the historical society. There was a larger building next to it, but it burned down.
