Check out these great cars.

I happened upon two impressive photos today. One is of the interior of Studebaker Foundry Building 85 in 2006. The other is of Building 85 in 2007. This building was demolished in order to make way for Ignition Park, a tech hub. The scale of the building as well as the soft light within the dire environment is striking.
