    Re: List of Chrysler Dealers Axed

    Looks like no one in central Iowa will be buying a Chrysler anytime soon.

    Not that they were anyways.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:

    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    I'm not sure how the contract works, but I would guess that Stu Hansen will start selling the Chrysler brand.

    Yeah, since they "screwed" you over, dozens of employees deserve to get canned.

    Re: List of Chrysler Dealers Axed

    How much money does Chrysler save by cutting dealers?


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Benson is just losing their Dodge lineup. They will still have Buick and GMC to sell.

    You didn't let them screw you enough, so now they don't have any money and people lose their jobs. Hope you're happy.

    I think the end result of all this is that people will be paying more for cars.

    Being Chrysler will not be paying back its bailout money I will never buy a Chrysler model anyway. Good riddance.

    Since you're paying for them anyway, you might as well buy one.
