Celebrating the history of Back to the Bricks on its tenth anniversary

Posted: Updated:
FLINT (WJRT) - (08/14/14) - Back to the Bricks is about more than just showing off fancy cars. It also highlights Flint's rich automotive history.

It's an exciting time in Flint. Ten years and Back to the Bricks is still going strong. Perhaps there is no better place to hold such an event - The Vehicle City's culture is dominated by the automotive industry.

A point driven home to a crowd of spectators during a special ceremony Saturday morning. Hank Graff spoke just before the unveiling of the city's newest automotive pioneer statue in his grandfather Otto P. Graff's memory. An honor that comes on Graff Chevrolet's one hundredth anniversary.

Otto started the company in Flint with $600 in 1914. It's grown and become Michigan's oldest family owned dealership.

It reminds everyone about the foundation of Back to the Bricks. Over the last decade, the event has grown in size and popularity, attracting people from all over the world, including General Motors executives - like Vice President Mark Reuss.
