Frank Lloyd Wright -designed Auto Showroom Demolished

A luxury-car showroom designed by Frnak Lloyd Wright operated here from 1957 to 2012. It was said to have been the inspiration for Wright's Guggenheim Museum design (I believe because of the spiral ramp in the display area). It was demolished in March 2013, before preservationists had a chance to try to protect it. See, for ex., the New York Times online, www.nytimes.com/autos, as mentioned in the 6/23/13 paper.
