Less than half a day after I wrote my last entry, praising our Chevrolet Impala, our local dealership, Love Chevrolet, shut down. I am both sad and angry.
From what I've gathered from news reports, it wasn't so much a lack of willing buyers as the inability for buyers to obtain credit from financial institutions. Those same financial institutions were given billions in bailout money which was supposed to allow them to keep making loans. Your tax dollars are not at work.
I guess I won't get to test drive an HHR anytime soon.
This comes on top of losing our Volkswagen and Dodge dealers when the Wester family retired last year. Who will be next?
