Okay, maybe not your car. Yours may well have been made in Japan or Germany or in some exotic foreign land like...Tennessee. But your mother's car or your grandfather's car...chances are awfully good that those cars -- those being driven in the 1920s, '30s, '40s and '50s -- were made in and around Detroit. Millions of automobiles came out of Michigan in those days, returning millions to the men who owned the companies. The auto barons spent that money well, building magnificent mansions for themselves. They even built mansions for their little kids. You'll find them all around Detroit. If you want to see the big four that are open to the public, it will take a couple of days, so why not make a weekend of it?
