Kari and I have been on Vacation all week, and let me tell you its been nice since its been almost a year since I have gotten a good amount of time off..

Anyway we decided to make a trip to toledo, to visit a few things. Two things on my list where the old Parkway plant, well whats left of it, and the Toledo North Assembly Plant (TNAP) We hoped in the KJ, and headed to the home of the Jeep.

I put in the address of the Parkway plant for starters and I knew we where getting close when this appeared:

Finally we hit the first set of gates..
Image
Then on down "Jeep parkway"
Image
You hit the famous intersection of "Jeep parkway" and "Willys parkway"
Image
Image
and the second set of gates..
Image
The third gate was wide open, but with the wife and kid with me, I didn't venture in. With that said I took some photos of basically whats left of the plant.

Once I had my fill, we headed over to Chrysler drive, to check out TNAP. We didn't stick around to much, There where JK's, Jeep semi's driving around everywhere. The semi's liked to pull out and hammer down..
So here's some photo's from TNAP

One of the trailers full of I'm guessing JK axles since the KL doesn't use Solid axles..

I won't bore you anymore but while at zoo, they had a TJ sitting out with the giraffes that I thought was funny.. If only I could of found a way to steal its full doors!

I drive past that site a few times a year when I go to Detroit for work. All of the guard shacks/turnstyles were in place around the old plant until about a year ago, within the past two years they really started doing a lot of site clean up around there. I'm glad they have brought the hold Overland smokestack down though. Supposedly there are some plans to redevelop that site, but I don't know any details.
