Wouldn't have worked on this one unfortunately, she had the oil changes and all work done at the base shop per manufacturer specs, so the engine compartment LOOKED fine. She just never redlined the motor so it wound up being underpowered for a rotary. Also interior was slightly trashed

Base price for one of those puppies is between 23K and 60K. So we will average the price due to unknown models on that trailer. 40K$ X 5 = $200,000 on that trailer alone. Hope he has good insurance.

Woodward is fun. I go every year since it'* only a short drive away. The thing I like about the Gratiot Cruise is the fact that it is much smaller. Makes it easier to walk and you can see everything in one day. A bunch of cities have the cruise on Gratiot all summer long, so you don't have to compress one event into one day.

To try and walk Woodward from 8 mile to Pontiac would be a hike especially if the weather is hot.
