Romney Tells Detroit Crowd That He Drives A Chevy Pickup And Mustang, His Wife Drives Two Cadillacs

Mitt Romney cruised over to Michigan earlier today to deliver his economic policy address at Ford Field in Detroit. After commenting, once again, on the height of the trees in the state, he segued into his collection of American cars to appeal to the motor city.

Romney opened, “I actually love this state. This feels good being back in Michigan. The trees are the right height. The streets are just right. I like the fact that most of the cars I see are Detroit-made automobiles.” Apparently there’s no left turns in Michigan ever.

He continued, “I drive my mustang and a Chevy pickup truck and Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs. I used to have a Dodge truck, so I used to have all three covered.”

His wife Ann drives “a couple of Cadillacs” hopefully not simultaneously. Romney’s aides told reporters that she has two Cadillac SRXs. The luxury mid-size SUV ranges from $35,500 to $54,500. An average estimate would place the value of her two vehicles at about $90,000.
