IT is a men-only club, these auto-repair hawkers who battle for your business as you bump your way down the pothole-pocked streets of Willets Point in Corona, Queens.
At least until you get to Dacar Auto Radiator, a wedge-shaped repair shop located where -- this is so Queens! -- Willets Point Boulevard, 127th Street and 37th Avenue converge.
Suddenly there is Pasiana Rodriguez, 43, a woman in a form-fitting jumpsuit. She waves you over and begins bargaining for the repair job before you even stop.
