When we first bought the Cadillac it had a bad heater core, spewing coolant all over the floorboards and spitting white smoke into the passenger compartment. We tried to make it to Sterling, IL which was the nearest “big” town to where we purchased the Caddy. On the way, we spotted Pete Harkness Chevrolet (just as the caddy was overheating). We met Nancy, the sweetest lady in all of Illinois, and she introduced us to Joe, the service manager and best mechanic in all of Illinois. Joe’s expertise had us back on the road in no time, with only a $60 repair and tuneup bill.
Hey Cars for a Grand heads! We are back at it again, taking on the roads of this fine country in a $1,000 car. Last April, we went from San Diego to Miami in a $899 Pontiac Lemans. This time, we are hopping on a one way flight to Chicago, buying a $1,000 car from CarsForaGrand.com, and driving Route 66 all the way to LA.
