more at http://cars.quickfound.net

Public domain film from the Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove
uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
George Campbell Scott (October 18, 1927 -- September 22, 1999) was an
American stage and film actor, director, and producer. He was best known
for his stage work, as well as his portrayal of General George S. Patton in
the film Patton, as General Buck Turgidson in Stanley Kubrick's Dr.
Strangelove, and as Ebenezer Scrooge in Clive Donner's adaptation of A
Christmas Carol. He was the first actor to reject the Academy Award for
Best Actor. He had already warned the Academy beforehand that if he won, he
would reject the award on the philosophical grounds that every great
dramatic performance was unique and could not be compared to others...
Buick, formally the Buick Motor Division /ˈbjuːɨk/ is a brand of
automobiles manufactured by General Motors (GM). For much of its existence
in the North American market, Buick has been marketed as a premium
automobile brand, selling entry-level luxury vehicles positioned above its
mainstream GM stablemate Chevrolet, and below the flagship Cadillac
division. Buick's elegance and luxury is particularly evident when they
applied generous quantities of faux wood trim both in the interior and
exterior of early 1990s models such as the Roadmaster. Buick holds the
distinction of being the oldest active American marque of automobile, and
the original Buick Motor Company was a cornerstone of the establishment of
General Motors in 1908. Before the establishment of General Motors, GM
founder William C. Durant previously served as Buick's general manager,
while his friend Louis Chevrolet worked as a racing driver for Buick and
later learned automotive design working there.
Since the discontinuation of Saturn in 2009, GM has positioned Buick to be
an analogue to its European Opel division, sharing models and development.
Buick-branded vehicles are sold in the United States, Canada, Mexico,
China, and Israel. Buick sold 1,032,331 vehicles worldwide in calendar
2013, a record for the brand...
The automobile salesperson is one of many sales professions. The automobile
salesman is a retail salesperson, who sells new and/or used cars. Unlike
traditional retail sales, car sales are sometimes negotiable. Salesmen are
employed by new car dealerships or used car dealerships.
Types of salespeople
A salesman negotiates deals with private buyers and corporate buyers. An
internet salesman or manager may handle advertising and leads that come
through the internet, or distribute leads to floor salesmen. The fleet
manager markets to corporate or institutional customers who buy several
vehicles at a time at a discounted, set price, and does not deal with the
general public. A closer is often a manager who assists in negotiation. The
floor manager sits in an office which usually has a sales board listing
appointments and recent sales activity by salesman. The salesman brings
offers to the manager who can accept or make counter offers. The manager
makes decisions as to what final negotiated prices will make business sense
under current market conditions. With the advent of the internet and
pricing tools like vauto, the car salesman job has changed. Dealers and
consumers can find out what any car is selling for with the click of a
mouse. This has caused dealers to have to slim down profit margins to lure
in internet buyers who are looking for the best deal.
The price of a car, unlike many retail sales, is often negotiable. New cars
will often have a factory window sticker listing equipment and options, and
the suggested retail price. With the prevalence of the internet, and third
party information sites, the profit of dealers has dropped dramatically
since prices are widely advertised and best discounts are given to remain
competitive. The salesman is paid a commission, rarely a
fixed salary but usually based on a percentage of profit, so a deeply
discounted price results in a very low commission for the salesman...
