35 thoughts on “This shocking turn of events DESTROYED a family Ford dealer after 80 years

  1. I knew this dealership and competed with them for years and then as a vendor… Great people and a team… The day they lost the Oval was a huge shock to the area… Still pass by and think about the history…

  2. Auto dealerships will be THE major reason that the OEMs will be unable to compete with Tesla in the EV world – causing ALL of the OEMs and dealerships to go bankrupt.

  3. Sorry your dealership died,but,there were so many car dealerships closed,by OBAMA,SOUR GRAPES,`FOR PEOPLE WHOM DID NOT CONTRIBUTE TO HIS CAMPAIGN,WHEN,IT STARTED INNJ
    I could not understand what was going on,but it was obvious in time, it mattered not,what brand. BTW,THE worlds OLDEST FORD DEALER IS KIG,,,KINGSTON INDUSTRIAL GARAGE,
    IN JAMAICA WI,,,,,,,🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  4. Same thing happened to our Chevrolet dealer in our county in the early 2000. Had been doing business with them for ever. It was always pleasant experience. Now I'd rather have a root canal with no pain killer than to go to one of the mega dealers where I have to fight over the end price from the time I set foot on their lot.

  5. I didn't expect the reason to be an untimely death in the family. I expected it to be someone with an "issue" against the dealership and hired lawyers to sue the dealership for more money than they ever could legitimately expect to make from that dealership. 🧐😟😮😱

  6. Wow, I went to Northwood back in 1970-1972. (got drafted right after that) My family had a Chevy dealership from 1948-1985 in Western Mass. in the Berkshires. know the feeling. Bill

  7. 2008 and 2009 sucked for a lot of us. I had work for a construction company for many years and was one of their Aces. When bear Stearns went down they were selling off all their Earth moving equipment. Because of my knowledge, I was able to become a traveler. And take jobs away from other people in other cities in Michigan. Turned out to be one of the most ugliest things I've ever seen.

  8. Seems to me that Ford laid off the wrong group of people. It's the developers who created the problems,. Untrained quality control testers weren't able to detect and report the problems. just my two cents….

  9. Great story and I can relate .
    I started in the business selling cars and worked my way through the management seats up to GM , 2 buy sells and running a high line store for one of the major consolidated companies.
    Could not buy in and eventually new leadership came in and started weeding out GM’s they didn’t hire and I was one .
    Eventually parted company. In my 50’s then and could see the trend they wanted young guys they could pay less . That one hurt .
    Always maintained profitability and great CSI . Low turnover in associates .
    Had some great years but wish it would have been with a private group in my hay day .
    Life goes on ….

  10. Dealers are lowlife thieves. I have personally met many of them. Scum bags. They make way too much money. That is part of the reason cars are so costly.

  11. how sad that your family business was destroyed by corporate America and the government . if anyone remembers that era obama fired the head of general motors and gave Chrysler corpoation to Fiat a Italian car company , not to get political but who made him king . no doubt he probably tried to fire Henry Ford too. i worked for several Ford dealers back in the day they all struggled and in my area i think only one of the original family ownes dealers from back than survived.

  12. By not doing something about the high markup, that Ford dealerships have been putting on the F-150 Lightning, I canceled my order. Looks like either Ford or their dealerships will fuck you one way or another.
