has owned the only VW (and now Porsche and Honda) dealership in Ann Arbor, Michigan, since 1972. At 83 he finally decided to retire, selling the dealership.
With 89 employees counting on their jobs, he turned down offers for a higher amount in order to sell to a company that agreed to keep the current employees on, nobody can afford to lose a job in Michigan right now!
And then, he walked into the dealership this week and distributed checks to his employees, in the amount of $1,000 for each year they had been employed. For some of them this amount was almost $30,000.
