Factor is the second generation to own the dealership, and his son works with him. The elder Factor said the letter wasn't a big surprise: "They've been trying to get rid of small dealers for 20 years and now they can because they are in bankruptcy. Under the Minnesota franchise laws they can't take your franchise away easily, but when they're in bankruptcy, the laws don't apply."

He said the loss stung even more because six months ago he had arranged to sell his Chrysler franchise to another larger Chrysler dealer a sale Chrysler denied. "So now we get zero instead of a very substantial amount of money. That really stung."
"We've had a very good quarter considering the economy. The local area has been good for us because they've been so loyal."
