Post any photos or information about American Center in this topic.  Here are a few pictures to start it off:

American Center, 27777 Franklin Road in Southfield, Michigan, a suburb near Detroit. This was the world-wide headquarters of AMC.




Also, I have been to a couple of skyscraper pages that have good info.  When I find them in my thousands of bookmarks, I'll add them in another reply to this topic…

Re: American Center, the World Wide HQ of American Motors

This week I had to spend a couple of days in Detroit for work. The best part of the trip was driving right past the former American Center building again for the first time since 2000. Its placement and profile make it visible for a couple miles away from either direction on 696, although the American Center signs now read "Charter One". As I drove by I wondered how many of the motorists around me knew the significance of the exit signs which read "American Drive".

I am sure not many realize the significance of the names.

Here's a shot I took in 2000 while approaching American Center. I had no idea we would be passing it but recognized it from this far away! I'm pretty sure I have a closer view somewhere.

That's a great shot.  Love to see one just a little closer.  Watch where you're going, now…  ;D
