Folsom, CA (Yuppie-burb of Sacramento) is in my neck of the woods. I was browsing the online car ads of my local struggling newspaper, the Sacramento Bee, and was struck by the number of trucks for sale.
“We’ve got more trucks than ever before . . . ” Yes, over 1,000 is quite a lot. (Get it?)
“Backed by the Federal Government! Now that’s peace of mind!” Now that’s funny!
This dealership is not on the hit list, but its neighbor, Folsom Lake Chrysler Jeep, is. Drove by the automall yesterday and it was a ghost town.
To illustrate the dire situation, take a look at this part of the ad:
$9175 off a stripper model and must finance thru [Aargh! Thru is not a word!] a credit union. No ChryFi or GMAC here . . . The saddest part of this ad is the 2008 T&C LX prior rental listed at $15,995 (good luck with that, FLD).
What’s it like in your neck of the woods?
