Founded in 1899, Packard was an American automotive marque that produced a suite of luxury automobiles, including the Packard 120, Packard Clipper, Packard Hawk, and many more — until the company shut its doors in 1958. 

Even though it's been closed down for more than 50 years, the abandoned Packard Automotive Plant still stands, although looking rather sad these days. The giant 3,500,000-square-foot plant now acts as a canvas for graffiti artists, a hunting ground for paintballers, and is also known to act as a home for some (see the video below about Allan Hill). Check out these videos that explore the abandoned plant, and read more about Packard in the August issue of New Zealand Classic Car.
