FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

The "forgotten heroes" of the auto industry were honored today in Flint's Back to the Bricks celebrations.
Officials revealed a statue of Otto Graff, one of the first people to own a car dealership in Flint.
The Graff dealership opened in 1914.
It now sells Chevrolets, but for the first 60 years, the dealership sold Fords.
The statue of Otto Graff will be placed at the site of the first Graff dealership in downtown Flint.
It was sculpted by Joe Rundell, who also made statues of Louis Chevrolet and Walter Chrysler.
