The smokestacks at the old Jeep plant in Toledo will start coming down Monday. Preservationists hope to keep at least one of the three smokestacks standing as a monument to Jeep's history, but details have not been announced pending a 10 a.m. memorial at the site near I-75.
Paul Wohlfarth, a 30-year Jeep assembly line worker and Ottawa Lake resident, has been pushing to keep at least the smokestack that says Overland standing to honor Willys-Overland Motors, best known for making military Jeeps in World War II.
