Would you look at this! Oh my gosh just look at it!

Squeeze / gate page :)

They perform extremely well at sub-prime stores. Not sure I'd recommend one at a Lincoln store though. lol

If a sub-prime store does utilize a squeeze page I would recommend making the inventory results page accessible and instead place the squeeze page in between the SRP and VDP.

Go easy. They don't have a 100 new cars in stock with both Ford and Toyota. I'm sure Ottumwa appreciates his "No Bull Approach"

I just loved the "So other dealers aren't spying on us" tactic. Never seen that one before.
Frank Myers Auto Maxx is one of the first dealers I became aware of utilizing this tactic many years ago:

But again, they cater to the sub-prime market.

Oh, I definitely understand the squeeze. This one just seems pretty tight and I can't imagine it translates well in Southern Iowa.

It also doesn't stop anyone from using the Search feature to find the car they're looking for.
Very odd strategy.
