RACINE (WKOW) – Porcaro Ford purchases one of Racine's two trolleys Wednesday with plans to keep it within the town.
The 20-year-old trolleys were auctioned off because the city could no longer afford to run them.
The president of Porcaro Ford told the The Journal Times he paid $27,500 for one trolley and spare parts, including a $400 auction fee.
The trolley is expected to play a role in the Fourth Fest Parade.
According to the city, the second one sold for $23,100.
City Administrator Tom Friedel says the city will receive a check for $50,000.
