She's hot. And I have bought a car from Germain (Nissan) and they were very fair.

You know anything about taxes? To legally write off your car on the business taxes isn't quite that simple...
Go Back and Read Post #9! Then Call the IRS Hot Line and ask about writing off the Lease payment for the vehicle used 100% for a business. Nuff Said.

Please - feel free to purchase whatever you wish on credit. However, that is a bad policy for an individual who is trying to optimize their finances. You suggest that we have an "obligation" to make the system work by borrowing money? Sounds like socialism to me. As for houses - the reason a house costs $195,000 is that that is the maximum money that the average person can BORROW to buy it. If you outlawed mortgages, then the price would fall to maybe $19,000 - the average amount that the average worker could save up within a reasonable time to buy it. So the entire Realtor-Bank-Mortgage system has inflated the prices of homes by a factor of 10, making them out of reach for today's youth.
You need to follow the advice of your posting name, this post has no relation to reality.

What I am talking about is the "We're Dealing"/"let me go talk to my manager" attitude and that's nothing against Ricart. I have also been happy with Ricart--We got a steal on a stripped down Ford Ranger there and are very happy with the truck. That said, most mid-range car dealers seem like they they'll take anybody off the street - the guys at dealers could just as easily be selling shoes at a mall. Roush salespeople seem to be a cut above - just very professional in their approach.
Very true, there are plenty of dealers who hire anyone who can negotiate. But the good dealers take these things called a resume. They screen potential workers, drug test them, and require at least an associates degree. Some don't, but some do. And the dealers that do are the most successful. Instead of walking into a mob scene as a customer, you fell as if you are actually doing business in a professional manner.

You are absolutely correct! I mean, without the banks, houses would sell for less than what it costs to buy the land and build them! What an amazing idea...get schooled please.

I don't think it matters, except maybe in the case of Jack Maxton. Even though the dealership is no longer owned by the Maxtons that name has been around for so long that you would almost have to be stupid to get rid of it. Almost as stupid as when they got rid of the name Lazarus.

I do I think it's neat that the nephew kept up the Len Immke name on the Buick dealership as a tribute to his uncle, even though his name is LaVelle.

^^^ Chesrown keeps the name up probably for the same reason and probably so his dealership doesn't get confused with his brothers dealerships (Dave Gill and Tom Gill in Cincinnati).
