The American Automobile Factory Map project

As part of a story I'm working on, I put the Staver factory in Chicago on a Google map. Since then, I've added another few dozen factory locations, and am launching it as an open map project, since I couldn't find anyone else who had done such a thing. Collaborators are welcome.

Also GM had the Willow Springs Fisher body plant at 79th and Willow Springs Rd. The 1962 Illinois Manufacturers Directory (50th anniversary edition) on page 1844 lists this plant as employing 3,500 workers. Product line was automotive stampings.
