Flint Photos: You Auto Buy Now


  1. Where you been (have you been) Gordon?

    1. Semi-vacation after finishing the book and the book tour. Time to start devoting more time to the blog again.

  2. That's a 1958 Chevy cruising Saginaw St.

  3. Looks like a new 58 Oldsmobile parked the wrong way, probably on display. In the background is a 56 Ford on Saginaw and a 51-52 Buick hardtop parked on the side street.

    Going the other way on Saginaw is what appears to be a Studebaker Hawk and a 56 Chevrolet.


Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
