"Hey, hey MetroMPG, you want some CX, or some DX? Ya ya I got it, got some nice Prius too. The good stuff straight from Japan, none of that local stuff. Have a test drive on the house, but when you want more, you come back and see me!"

And not everyone out here is rich. But the people that aren't don't end up at the dealer auction looking for cars to drive personally. And as you are finding out MetroMPG, and anyone else that has tried to sell a eco car, most people don't want to spend money to save money. They are a tough sell, and you never get much for them, not around here anyway. So from a business point of view, no car dealer in his right mind is going to buy a $500, 24 year old Civic to take up space on his lot to try and get $1000 for it. He'll buy a 10 year old SUV for $3500 and put it on his lot for $6500 and it will sell in a day. The cars we like end up getting scrapped, or in my "collection" sadly.
