Lesson learned for sure!! It survived all the snow this winter, but the heavy rains this spring did it in. But as a bonus, its getting a new interior now. Hopefully we finish it up this weekend.

Watch out for the Novi SUV Cop on Wixom Rd. Between Grand River and !0 Mile. He's looking for us.
So if your coming from Angelos to a neighborhood south of 11 mile on Wixom road you have to go down Beck or Napier to 10 mile then back up Wixom?

Yes. If your going into Island Lakes or any other sub division, you must enter before you hit 11 mile even though theres a sign that state " No Construction Traffic". If your entering a sub south of 11 mile you must go around.

I went to court today and they reduced the fine by $100. So instead of $420, I get to pay $320. Yay me. No compassion there at the 52 Court. I even offered to mow some parks in Novi in exchange. It was worth a shot.

Does any one know what the legal definition of a "commercial" vehicle is, or when one must be registered with mdot and have a # put on their truck?

No. 26,001 and up. 29,999 has nothing to do with anything.

26,001 and up for truck or truck\trailer combo.
