Automobiles don’t really rust-out anymore.
Well, not like they used to.
I remember when my dad purchased a Honda in the late 70′s.
What a rust bucket. Especially this one.
Now, Not Too Much
I don’t see a lot of rust on cars and trucks anymore.
That must hurt automotive franchises like Ziebart.
(A rustproofing franchise)
According to Thomas Wolfe, who’s been with Ziebart for years, “The auto industry changes every year and we have to offer products and services to meet those changes. If a franchisee does not, he is in trouble. Plus the other challenge is, in the past years we’ve been having a very difficult [time] in financing. It’s very difficult for financing companies to get financing and it appears that the banks are starting to loosen up with financing and that should help a lot of franchisees who want to move forward in their business but need some capital.”
