Hail dents dozens of cars at Northwoods car dealership


People in the Northwoods are cleaning up after this week's strong storms.

Heavy rain and hail made a mess in some places. In Tomahawk, Heritage Chevrolet suffered thousands of dollars of damage thanks to the hail.

More than 70 vehicles were outside Wednesday when the storm rolled in. The cars were covered with dozens of small dents.

"Most of this, if not all of it, will come out by a process called paintless dent removal where they actually have a way of pressing it out and restoring the strength of the metal," said Roger Schlegel, Heritage Chevrolet dealer principal. "That's not as expensive as the old way of doing it where you used to replace panels."

Dealership officials say it will probably cost about a thousand dollars to fix each car. The dealership does have insurance.
