I dropped by the trim shop as I am fixing my new to me truck a bit. I have been doing business with the same people for over 25 years so we know each other on a first name basis. It had been a while since I've had them do any work for me, less boat registration numbers.
So I ask the owner, "How has business been."
He said, "Not so great, but it is picking up a bit."
I asked him, "I guess the Obamaconomy hasn't helped much?"
He said, "More than you know. It all started with the 'cash for clunkers'. People traded in their old cars and bought new ones. Since they were paying notes, they had no money for custom items. Not only that but the used cars traded in were destroyed causing affordable cars for some to disappear."
Anyone on here heard anything similar? Sounds about right....
