Packard Plant History Shown In Vintage Advertisement (PHOTO)

It may seem like Detroit's Packard Plant has always been an abandoned cavernous, often smoldering ruin. So a vintage advertisement posted on Imgur and shared by Reddit user hellpony that touts the plant's modern innovations seems more than dated.

But it's not just the Packard Plant that's changed. It would be difficult to find a contemporary advertisement that spent as much space on technical details of an assembly line, let alone revealed production expenses -- it's a lot more involved than "Like a Rock."

Below, check out photos of the Packard Plant today and throughout history.
