This man is "out there". How does anybody even find a reason to quote him?

Hey--we all KNOW what a great "Dealer Guy" Press was. Now, what was that you said Jim?? something like "We know who you are and where you live!" ? Man, what an inspirational leader !!

People like him and his kind at OEM's need dealers. They need dealers because they can extort money and concessions from them through adhesionary contracts or tilted sales and service agreements. They also need dealers to blame when they **** everything up. The only problem Tesla is facing is that eventually you need to turn a profit through sound business fundamentals something that Jim Press never did on his own.
