As America's Motor City, Detroit is home to Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler—and a historical mecca for car enthusiasts. At the same time, it's intimidating to navigate, with numerous dodgy neighborhoods and risky abandoned factory sites. Behind the wheel of his classic 1939 Ford Woodie, Tom Cotter cruises these streets looking for gold: fascinating collector cars, whether rusted wreckage or fully restored masterpieces. With wit and wisdom, Cotter lets us in on the thrill of the hunt, and profiles the charming people who share his obsession. Michael Alan Ross's photos tell a story of their own, with images of a reverend's cherry red '57 Chevy, the utterly desolate Packard Plant, and a rare Tucker 48 with its three headlights.
