Blighted American Motors building sold

It is unnaturally quiet inside the old AMC Headquarters building in Detroit. Occupied until just a few years ago, it has rapidly declined thanks to scrappers, neglect and the elements. It's still standing, but it's a huge mess - literally and figuratively.
Wayne County tells Fox 2 it sold for $500 at auction on Tuesday, with the new owner being on the hook for a little less than a quarter million dollars in taxes. Late Friday we learned, even if the buyer - a Commerce Township man - can pay the taxes by Monday, the sale is going to court.
The former owner who lost the property pursued a restraining order to stop the process. As of now, no deed has been issued and no taxes paid, so we'll have to stay tuned.
