Heavy Winds Blow Ford Logo Off Of Company HQ

The wind was blowing strong across Southeastern Michigan Wednesday evening – so strong, in fact, that Ford’s World Headquarters in Dearborn lost its massive Blue Oval sign.

No one was injured by the gigantic, fallen sign, reports Click On Detroit. That is, save for Ford’s pride. The blow-away sign left only a massive, well-lit, empty oval on the side of the Ford building. There is no word yet on whether the Ford sign has been reinstalled.

Ford’s World Headquarters, often affectionately referred to as the “Glass House,” is a 12-story building located off of Michigan Ave in Dearborn. It was completed in 1956, and can house around 3,000 employees. The sign that was ripped off the face of the structure by Wednesday night’s fierce winds is made of a soft fabric, according to NESN, and will need to be completely replaced.

We hope the old one ends up on eBay. That would look pretty awesome in any garage.
