    :(  Sorry to hear it, man. I expected service to be a lot less at risk than sales. Maybe there's an independent shop you could get on at while you are looking for something more permanent?

    You should be able to get unemployment benefits while your searching.

    I'd start looking at secondary auto repair places, not linked to a dealership. A local auto service place I take my truck to is very busy and the manager expects to be get even more business as GM slashes its number of dealerships.

    yah apply for unemployment, and look into any and all job openings in your field, i think you should have a decent chance of finding a new job, maybe with less benefits and pay that you had been getting ( only guessing here i got no clue what you made at your previous job) ni wish you luck and i hope you don't have to sell your collection

    I'm sorry man. Were you layed off or fired? If they layed you off did they give you any severance?

    In the last three month I've survived two lay offs at my job. Its been awful. So many friends got 86'd.

    Dude...sorry. That's truly sucky. As others have said, try some independent repair shops. In this economy, a lot more people are willing to pay to have their car worked on rather than buying a new one when things go wrong, so some repair shops actually do well. f you're looking for something to help out a bit in the meantime, PM me, as I may have a lead for you in the Wesley Chapel area.

    Again (I know it sucks) but on the bright side, you do have a great talent on hand. People always need their vehicles worked on. You'll bounce back bro! I got faith in you!
