I love the car business. My Dad had lost his father at very young age and he was the youngest child of 3. His brother in-law 20 plus years his senior was in the car business in N Carolina. He had a choice of jobs after Sr. High the saw mill or clothing mill. His father owned the butcher shop in town. He had been cleaning cars and selling them while his brother in-law was in Mich. He was offered the oppertunity to ride to Detriot and barrowed $2500.00 in the early 50″s in order to go with his Uncle to Mich. from N.c. Met our mother from detriot, moved her to n.c. where they had 2 children, all along he was going back to her home weekly. She became home sick. Dad was hired by Stu Evans to replace retiring mgr. Became GM..he had the best job in the car business. He never lost his dream in any economy, achieved to be top 10 Lincoln stores in the country as Mr. Evans lived in FL.. Bought his own store in 1980, When everyone said he would fail. There was four of us kid”s when we left Mi. IT said and I quote from a sign on I75 ” last to leave turn the lights out”. My fathers became a dealer in Nashville, Tn. HIs name is BobWilliams. He was a great man, person, and had a great understanding of life and his relationship with his savior. He passed away in 1993 leaving a legacy of a great car man. Our family sold the dealerships in 2005 and all involved are still somehow related to the auto industry. The car business has always taken care of those who work at it and stay innovative. ” treat people as you expect to be treated and therefore you”re relationship will long endure.” Bob SR. writtin on a 20 foot mirror in showroom. My story is it’s true still today if you work the business it will be a fullfilling experience. Thanks, Greg Williams
