We are rapidly approaching the day when all of the nation’s car dealers will walk out to their henhouses and discover all their chickens are gone.
I have been warning you for years this was going to happen. I’m sort of the Alpha Dawg version of Paul Revere. Did you listen? Did you take action? Or did you naïvely wait for your dealer associations to march onto the battlefield to protect you? If you did, then you’re in the majority. Unfortunately, you’re going to get exactly what you deserve. After all, who let the fox in the henhouse to begin with?

I have spent the past few months spearheading a campaign to focus dealers and industry people on another issue dragging your stores’ profits down, stealing your business, and using your own inventory to divert your customers to other dealerships.
