WILKES-BARRE TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Some dings and dents on vehicles in Luzerne County could mean a deal for you.

There are some discounts on tornado-damaged cars at Ken Pollock Nissan in Wilkes-Barre Township.

Some small markings mean big savings on storm-damaged cars in the lot at Ken Pollock Nissan in Wilkes-Barre Township. Three weeks after the twister, the dealership is having a tornado-damage sale with cars up to $6,000 off.

"We've been shopping here and doing business with Ken Pollock for a long time. The service department is great. Prices are very competitive with anybody else," said Frank Tonart of Dallas.

The dealership says cars are flying off the lot.

Frank Tonart brought his car in to be serviced and to check out a few of the storm-damaged cars. He wasn't ready to commit to a buy just yet.

"I'm going to go get my wife and let her decide that. Happy wife, happy life," he said.

The cars all have different degrees of damage. Some only have a few scrapes and dents; others needed more serious repairs, but the dealership manager says all of them have been inspected and are safe to drive, which means lots of people have been stopping by.

"Business has been crazy for the last two weeks. Ever since Tuesday when we opened back up, it's been a constant flow of people coming in every day," said manager Gary Peters.

The manager says they've sold a whopping 107 cars in the last two weeks. Some of them were storm-damaged, some were not. There are still 150 cars on the lot ready to be bought.

"If you've got a kid going to college and stuff and you wouldn't be considering a new car, well you can get them at a used car price right now," Peters said.

The tornado damage sale at Ken Pollock Nissan will be going on until all the storm-damaged cars are sold.
