It's going to drastically affect the whole maintenance lineup, dealerships, independents, as we slow or stop travel, maybe little short trips, if any..

I guess my independent mechanic and his wife picked the right time to retire, the shop I redirected into has to be hurting.. Rents to pay, leases of test gear, parts houses, all will be hurting...

Will be watching local dealerships, one family has taken over 80% of the dealerships here in Sonoma County, CA... An empire in danger of collapse.. Ford, Lincoln, Honda, Toyota, more I think if I looked deeper.. One Honda dealer has retained his independence, GM, Jeep/Dodge are also on their own I think.. GM/Chevy dealership is one I had problems with, years back now..

A rough year for all of us..
