Dealing with a Bankrupt Chrysler

As part of its restructuring plan, Chrysler has cut 25 percent of its dealerships across the country. Two of those dealerships belong to Rick and Rob Engel.

The brothers have been selling Chrysler cars in New Jersey for more than 20 years and remained profitable - even during the current economic downturn. So they were surprised to find out that not one, but both, of their businesses would close. The Engel's talk about how they started out in the business by following in their father's footsteps, and they discuss being forced to close with just a few weeks notice.

He joins Dick to talk about how he got started in this unusual 'career.'
