At the H-M plant, you could see the crane derricks from the street. They were located where they burned the cars. No EPA then. I know they would stack cars, and assumed they knocked cars over.
The plant was located on the Illinois/Indiana boarder. Plant was all in Illinois.The burning took place near the boarder.

Perhaps that was not the case in what I saw as I remember seeing a door fall off the car. It made a big splash of embers
that really stood out in this boy's memory.
