How does one go about this? It seems like this would be different from the typical small business owner. Are any of you MacRumors members in the car sales industry? How do these dealerships initially open? Do people get huge bank loans, or just the lucky ones with big bank accounts have the opportunity to start these things? How do you get rights to sell a specific brand? Does it function like a franchise? Do the manufacturers assist you in any way? How do you pick location? How important is the location in relationship to the brand? I think it would be something I would be very good at, and enjoy doing. I just wouldn't know where to get started.
