    For sure, 2019 is going to be my last in business. The plan is to cut down to an elite group of existing customers for next year, maybe 50-60 total, then some others. Already not taking any Gallardos, probably have a cut off around the late 90s for most marques. Retain a handful of dealers.

    Thanks for the support over last 30 years, hope you make the cut!

    For a few months I will certainly take care of my existing clientelle, after April I hope to have a cut off year of 1999. Absolutely NO Lamborghinis after Jan 1, 2019. So, yes I am Jim.

    Currently starting talks with some KY based guys about running a north and south shop, so don't give up yet, still trying to make something work..........
    Two experienced people may be involved and I stay as a consultant for a while, expand the marques again, even those L'cars!

    Good luck Brian. I am planning similar, just have not made a schedule yet. When people ask I tell them I am in the buggy whip business. The industry has gone in a direction I won't go and the range of cars I enjoy keeps getting narrower. You and I were around for its heyday.

    Well, things are a little more positive for those enquiring about continuing service, hoping to shortly announce good news for those in the Indy/Louisville areas. Please voice support and encouragement to those currently involved in the negotiations.
