    Hustling like Pete Rose in his prime means no time to stop, so...

    Showroom is emptying & "For Rent" sign is up - are they off to greener pastures... or just being put out to pasture?

    Is there a sign saying anything in the window? If not that's weird. Jordan's post said they were at the Grand Prix and promoting cars. Maybe he thinks the high rent isn't worth it or he's now got a traveling F-caravan going. Let us know what you find out.

    I was there last week and it was fully intact.
    Nothing said to me about moving.

    Makes sense to show - *but* they've got 36 cars in "Inventory." When I'd driven by Thursday night, there were @ 6-7 in showroom, so I was already wondering what was up. Usually, there's 12 in showroom. Friday night, 3 were in showroom - 1 had a 2' x 3' "For Rent" sign sitting on a windshield - another had a cover & what remained was a yellow 512 or Testarossa. Seems they'd rotate some of the "other" inventory into the showroom during LBGP, to show what's normally not seen of the remaining Inventory - thereby having the roadshow and the showroom both doing their "thing" - if you can dig it.

    I've never been to the 133 Peck Dr. Location/Office/Whatever, so I don't know what's up with that.

    When I drove by Friday night it sure looked like it was closing up shop to me.

    Showroom's filled back up with Jordan's;) Inventory. *whew*

    I must say it's a dumb move to put a giant (3'+ wide) "For Rent" sign front and center on a car in a nearly deserted showroom.
