Buick City: From Cars to Copper

What's left of Buick City is still producing revenue...for copper thieves.

Ron Fonger of The Flint Journal reports:
The thefts are just an asterisk in the long history of the sprawling Buick City complex on Flint's North Side, where only a few hundred workers still produce parts for GM vehicles at what's called Powertrain Flint North.

Much of the Buick City site has been decommissioned or demolished since vehicle production ended here a decade ago.

The thefts apparently came from Plant 36, which had produced Buick engines until August of 2008.
