Thursday Portrait....


Hi everybody....
I seem to have this look of disbelief as I am filling up the tank of a Silverado Crew Cab. It's the first truck I've sold in a month. Thank goodness that Cobalts and Impala's are selling well!!!
To give you readers out there a glimpse of how brutal this business has become, my boss told me that out of 5380 Chevrolet sales people in the state of Michigan in 2008, I finished 248!!!
Not bad eh?....WRONG!!!
I know how much money I made in 2008, you mean to tell me that 5142 sorry bastards made less than me?...YIKES!!!

Start thinking about your 55's kiddies...

Peace...!!!

Dealerships in Detroit are dropping like flys. Brutal isn't quite the right adjective...immolating maybe.

i like your little
sprout of
sunlit hair.

and after
all the cars are sold
and life ends up
being whatever it is,
you will still have
a kind heart.

Sometimes I think, as I ride by all the used car dealers in town, "why so many cars"? Are people ever going to buy all these autos??
"I wonder how much money the salesmen are getting?"
I usually have a heavy heart as I drive by...p.s. Like the dooo...
