Dale has enjoyed riding trails for many years and has volunteered in several capacities. Earlier this year, as fundraising for the next stretch of The Heartland Trail was heating up, Dale let us know he had a unique way of giving. He was giving us his 1974 Ford Mustang. Well, sort of.
Already familiar with CarEasy, Dale made the arrangements and signed up to have the car sold at auction, indicating he wanted to donate the proceeds to Rails-to-Trails of Wayne County.
"They will accept the vehicle and pick it up at one's convenience, regardless of its running condition," said Dale.
"This is the second car donation in which I've worked with this charity."
CarEasy does the work. "Their towing rep worked with me to schedule an exact date and time for pickup and was prompt and professional," he reported. "Since it was sold at an area auction, it's possible that I'll see my car again someday on the road!"
The car sold for $1,400 and after expenses, RTWC will receive $898 thanks to Dale's generosity. Dale optimistically said, "It is my hope that others will have an opportunity in the future to donate to RTWC in this manner. It's been both fun and satisfying!"
Thank you, Dale. You can claim three and a half yards of trail as your own! Terrific!
