Good points, well written, but
“apparently Mr. Wilson’s political affiliation is very important to Chrysler, the bankruptcy court and the US government.”
was all he needed to ask.

it is difficult for me to view this abrogation of our franchise rights as anything more than a manipulation of US bankruptcy court and law so that Chrysler LLC can transfer wealth between dealers they like and those they dislike, those that have agreed to under-table favors and those that haven't, and to settle old vendettas.

This certainly has a familiar stench to it......and for all of those garnering assets at the expense of your fallen teammates, the criminals you are dealing with will eventually come for you too......

FTA: He has maintained a car dealership in Texarkana, Texas since the late 1960s. He purchased that dealership from my grandfather, who purchased it from my great-grandfather,

Did he benefit from the Chrysler bailout that took place in 1979?

Just a side point. The state franchise agreements, which the dealers zealously support ( and without bankruptcy Chrsyler could do nothing..terminating a dealer used to be the equivalent of trying to fire a bad teacher ) sort of laid the groundwork for this years ago. When Chrysler killed Plymouth, it made no sense for Chrysler in Alvin to be sold by a multi-dealer line, when it should have been paired with the Dodge dealer. But no way the guy would give it up, without a BIG pay off, I suspect..

This guy needs to fi.e an adversarial action in BK court. He could stretch this thing out for years with not a lot of effort. If Chrysler is doing this, it is BK fraud and an honest BK judge will see right through it and rule for him if the judge is honest.

If Washington is in a "hearing" mood, perhaps they could take this on and get ahead of the curve for once. After all, the Obamateur wants to "look forward, not backward" so let's not pick the housing bubble scab right now, let's look at this arterial bleed.

But I do look forward to hearing all those RATs from Congress telling us last July how sound was Freddie and Fannie. (or was that the year before? they killed proper regulation so many times, it's hard to keep track.)

Confidential to dealers losing franchises: open a pitchfork store, I sense a growing demand.

Please accept the following from a non-practicing lawyer

File an objection with the bankruptcy court asap. Play every card. Get women admin workers to picket other dealer. Dem hq, everywhere else. Get black employees to call naacp then picket. Call tv stations etc. Underlying message: unfair unamerican’ etc.

Finally, if dodge makes money selling cars, why close places that sell their cars? Huh:

Sad story for sure but, Rogers Dodge forgot to mention something important.

For about 10 years now Chrysler has been fairly active in streamlining their dealership operations by way of “pro-pack”, i.e. doing Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge all in one dealership. Through this process, no doubt many single brand dealers got absorbed, while the diehards hung on. Diehard yes, but they still die, in the end. Most unfortunately, but not unseen.

One can barely argue against efficiency these days.

They were profitable on used cars.

In other words, they were not making money for Chrysler.....which is the point of having a Chrysler franchise!

Sorry, but if they are so good at selling used cars, let them continue to do it. They don’t need Chrysler for it and then they can stop their whining.

Chrysler is taking our franchise so that it can be given to our neighbor across the street, Ron Carter Autoland

I wonder who this guy donated to politically. Even more important, check Ron Carter's donations.

I don’t think America really cares which franchises are propped up with taxpayers dollars.

First, it’s hard to be sympathetic to any car dealership. Raise your hand if you haven’t been screwed over or at least misled by one.

Second, this diatribe misses the point: The market, not Zero, decided Chrysler was not worthy of continuing. His franchise would have been killed by the market in any event, just like it will once his neighbor gets it. Someone indeed supportive of “the American Way”, a/k/a the free market economy, would understand that, and move on to more productive things than crying about not recieving their piece of the bail-out pie, which is a greater miscarriage of justice against ALL Americans.

To the author: Sorry your ox got gored, but we’ve been trampled, and don’t really care that you’re losing some generational wealth.

Sounds like Ron Carter had both Chrysler and Jeep lines in their store and the one losing across the street only had Dodge. Looks to me like Chrysler is consolidating much of their dealerships into multiple lines such as Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep all in the same store. GM is doing a lot of that also or so it seems to me.
