DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - Officials involved in the Automotive Hall of Fame want to move to Detroit from the suburbs to better reflect the city’s automotive history and participate in Detroit’s revival.

The Automotive Hall of Fame’s President William Chapin announced the plans Thursday at the organization’s annual induction ceremony. Chapin says that there’s a need for such a destination in downtown Detroit to focus on the industry’s history and future.

This year’s inductees included automotive safety advocate Ralph Nader and former Ford Motor Co. CEO Alan Mulally.

The Automotive Hall of Fame is located near The Henry Ford, a history attraction in Dearborn that includes Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. The Automotive Hall of Fame is looking for a possible site that Chapin says would be “more than just a car museum.”
