The Dodge Viper as we know it has left this world. The Connor Avenue assembly plant won’t simply sit and rot in Detroit, however. Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles has plans to turn the former assembly plant into a heritage museum.
Fiat-Chrysler Authority reported that the automaker plans to house heritage Chrysler Corporation vehicles at the former Viper plant. The plant also built the Plymouth Prowler. The site will also serve as a replacement for the Walter P. Chrysler Museum, which closed in 2016. According to the report, 85 of the 400 heritage cars will find a home at the to-be-named Connor Center.
So, we ask, should General Motors also bring its own heritage center to Detroit? The city, often nicknamed “Motor City,” lacks its own true auto museum and GM certainly has a quite a catalog of cars fit for a museum.
GM has recently begun exhibiting some of its vehicles at “GM World,” settled inside the automaker’s Detroit Renaissance Center headquarters. Right now, the automaker has a collection of vehicles from its various motorsport programs on display.
