    I have tried to contact deidre multiple times. I have had no luck in doing so due to her lack of response. I was only wondering if she’s heard of Corrington auto sales from east St. Louis. This was owned by my great grand father and he sold almost a hundred vehicles to al. I have pictures, but she doesn’t seem to care. Only trying to share.
