    In my circles, sales have been slow in Jan & Feb, but dealers are telling me that they're having a great March.

    Hows your March going?

    Up until Friday & Saturday, we were pacing horribly. All it took was two good days to get us back on track. Working to keep that momentum going through EOM.

    I built a spreadsheet with data from 01/18 to present day, with the number of car sales we have gotten each day, and each day of week. If historical trends hold true, we are at the start of a great week (imagine that, last week of the month being great).

    Automakers Stuff Fleet Channels Amid Showroom Demand Collapse
    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-05/automakers-stuff-fleet-sales-showroom-demand-sputters

    Fleet sales - those to rental companies - have been for a long time the dirty little secret of the automobile industry. They are often times where automakers can bolster numbers that would otherwise looks dismal based only on organic, showroom sales. And according to Bloomberg, this is exactly what has been happening over the last couple of months.
