I’m trying to figure out why the heck they closed a lot of these dealers before their clunker plan went into effect.


I thought the clunker plan was in effect, is it not?

Correct. BUT, why can't they tell him?

Government bureaucrats are with the government because they don’t have the disposition to be in private business. Just think, no risk to them, they don’t have to care, and they get power over others.

My daughter works for King County, Seattle and after growing up and working in our family that has businesses she says she can’t stand that attitude and work ethic at the county. Being a hard worker can be looked down on because you might make your co-worker’s laziness look bad.

I think you’re wrong about that. The Ministry of Truth (MiniTru) says there were only a couple of hundered. Please get your fact right comrade.

I’m wondering if a state with a republican majority could ban the sale of GM or Chrysler cars in their state for canceling legally held franchises in their state. Would be great payback.

LaTourette’s amendment to the annual Financial Services spending bill would force GM and Chrysler to restore dealer franchises.

Anyone else have a problem with that? What has happened to these dealers is a crying shame. But having Congress run the company is even worse.

Back in the 80s when I lived in Akron, I purchased several cars from Ron Marhofer. It was a small enough dealer that you could talk to him personally. He was one of the few car dealers that I found trustworthy. A good guy.
Sorry to hear this.

It’e even money that some interesting items will emerge.....

They are just trying to fix a problem that they created by trying to fix another problem that they created by trying to fix a previous problem that they created by trying to fix a previous problem...

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Mr. Marhoffer made the critical mistake of supporting Republican candidates. Just wait until he tries to get health care under ObamaCare.... you, sir, are toast.

I wonder how many other Chevrolet dealers there are within say a 8 - 10 mile radius? What are the sales comparison numbers, total volume, facility conditions, etc.
