Jan 30-- Las Vegas is one of the favorite sites for the annual National Automobile Dealers Association convention, which starts tomorrow. Car dealers love to come to Vegas.
Some of it is probably the weather, which this time of year has temperatures in the 50s and 60s during the day. Some of it is the abundance of great golf courses. And of course there is the entertainment.
But mostly, its because dealers feel at home here. As entrepreneurs who invest their personal fortunes in their neighborhood businesses, car dealers are gamblers. Come fat years or lean years, good products or bad, car dealers must sell and service whatever the automakers send them. And do it cheerfully.
As always, there are issues with the factories. But times are pretty good for most dealers. This weekends convention will be fun.
