largest Ford dealer?

Well from time to time I play on the Ford website, building cars and such.

Well I built a Crown Vic, LX Sport, then I noticed that my local dealer only had three in stock, and none of them were Sports.

I was trying to think of other dealers, and it turns out that they just aren't that popular in MT, crown vics anyway.

I was curious who and where the largest Ford dealer in the West was?

I use to work at a place that sold up to 800 cars a month, on the East coast. Though I imagine that kind of information would be tough to find outside of Ford itself. I would say, look for the biggest Ford ad in a local newspaper with a web site.

Working at a Ford Dealer I know there are very few Crown Victorias ANYWHERE. the big rear wheel drive is not very popular so no one carries an inventory unless you hit a warmer climate where you might find a very few.
Like it's been said before if police / taxi fleets stop using them they will be discontinued.

If Galpin Ford in the "Valley" here in Los Angeles isn't the biggest I'd be surprised.

I think that maybe everyone else is in the misconception that FWD is good for snow driving.

so sad.....

The sales people I've spoken to there still don't know squat about their trucks. You can learn more here in a week than any salesperson I've spoken to has taken the time to learn.

Its not a salesmans job to know anything about what he is selling.

He only has to have a nice signature and a big perfect smile.

I have a hard time taking a female salesperson seriously, not saying they can't do it.

You are incorrect. A professional salesman knows his product, how to present it to the buyer and how to ask and answer questions - it is his job. What you are referring to is what the pros call "order takers".

Yeah, well there are very few true car salemen then.

I should have mentioned that I was only talking about car salesmen, not other types of salespersons.
