Gary Byrd Jr. didn't like the numbers he saw for some of Reagor Dykes Auto Group's dealerships.
A June audit of vehicles floorplanned with seven of the dealership group's west Texas stores had found discrepancies. Now, another audit was finding the same out-of-trust problems.
On Saturday, July 28, Byrd, Ford Motor Credit Co.'s regional manager for the Dallas area, met with the group's founder and co-owner, Bart Reagor. It didn't go well.
Byrd told Reagor about the discrepancies, said Ford Credit was asking to be paid funds that were due and said auditors would return to the stores the next Tuesday to count vehicles again.
