Shame on you for a rude and cruel personal attack. You sound like someone who got his ass kicked by Mr. Wolf in the 5th grade and you've been waiting for the chance to get back at him in a cowardly, anonymous way. Isn't the internet a great way for cowards to shot their mouth off with no fear. You'd only say tose things hiding behind your laptop. You've contributed nothing useful to the disussion but cowardice and spite.

I agree with you Jack. You cannot be a successful businesman by stepping over a dollar to pick up a dime. Andy Wolf is a selfish spoiled brat who got tired of playing in his sandbox and is taking his toys and going home. With his silver spoon in hand he has hired a number of incompitent GM's to make up for his shortcomings and none of them could get him to fully embrace being a car dealer. That means investing in your future through advertising building improvements and inventory. Three strikes there Andy. His last choice for GM was a old finance guy who will sing you a lie in any tone that suits you. I can't believe billboards didn't save the company. The whole situation is an example of lost work ethics and tight ass kids who have never had to earn a dime. Any money lost in this deal is from Bud's business savy and was handed down as a matter of family obligation. What a waste. By the way the Chevrolet was not down 25% last year that was just you Andy. Check your competition or consult your dealer 20 group.
Hope you and the receptionist you married don't blow all of Bud's money before you die.

Blaming the product is lame. Chevy is offering some the best products on the market now. The new Malibu is giving the Accord and Camry a run for their money. Bud Wolf happens to be victim of the neighborhood it was located in and it's small size. The Ford dealer down there is also gone and the Chrysler dealer ran north years ago. I am sure Lockhart Caddy will be outta there soon.

andy never knew anything about running a dealership. God knows his did tried to help him become a success. But as everyone knows andy didn't have the brains or personality to work with staff or customers. In fact the only thing he did manage to work with was the girl behind the receptionist desk who saw dollar signs on andy's face. Didn't seem to matter what the situation was, only the money counted. That was a big loss for the Wolf family beginning then. Poor Andy, just remember one thing, you can't blame anyone else for your mistakes or even your lack of trying. It's all on your shoulders andy!!!!!!

Andy Wolf had the best chance in the world to succeed with a dealership dumped in his lap and the support of his dad. Yet he was just not cut out to work or put out the effort needed to be successful. He has to many hobbies, to many cars in his garage and a wife who wants more and more and more. He just was not focused or strong enough to see the writing on the wall. It was a down hill slide from the day his dad had Andy take over. His business went down the tube, his first marriage went down the tube and last of all he lost everything. Only one reason for this kind of massive failure----stupidity.

Andy, you ran this dealership in the ground. If you would have put the coke down and realized you had a great opportunity to capitalize on a great dealership, you could have been something, Now, you are just some jack ass who couldn't run a Dollar General if your dad had given it to you.

I know parents are proud of there kids no matter what they do but I bet Bud and Harriet are looking at you thinking "what the hell did we create?"

Way to go champ! Hope you get Newfie a new Rolex, Benz, and whatever the hell else she wants.

Oh yeah, where's my money Wolf?
