Observations from the road

Whenever I drive through a town I make a quick mental note of economic activity. If there are any new buildings going up, empty store spaces, that sort of thing.

One of the things I have been making a mental note of lately is car dealerships. Most dealerships have a limited amount of inventory. This seems to be the case with every place that I have driven through lately. One Mazda dealer had only two new Mazdas on the lot. The exception seems Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep dealers. Practically all of them have a fair amount of inventory on their lots.

I am almost thinking they are the last choice.


  1. Car dealerships look the same here. Your mention of the exception being the Jeep dealers and it reminded me of the guy that approached us in a parking lot and asked us about our Rav4. Evidently he was driving a Jeep and had absolutely nothing good to say, even to the point of adding a sign to the side of his announcing to the world that it was a piece of junk.

  2. That tree reflection image is outstanding.
