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.

But it was from an award-winning website company with the least user-friendly navigation menus known to man. :)
