Crazy Hail Storm (size of golf balls) Reading PA - YouTube
I hate thinking about hail storms like this in the north east area considering a majority of my cars are outside and very vulnerable to this. But unfortunately it happens.

As previously stated these cars would be a great buy for people who own body shops and want to flip for easy profit.

You'd be amazed at how much of that could be repaired with Paintless Dent Repair.

Most times the dealers make out like bandits after a hail storm. Claim insurance on the cars, collect the insurance proceeds but never fix the cars, and then sell as-is for a marginal discount vs. new.
