Default dealers

Most of that black market dealing would have been city based . In a rural community, like those smaller regional towns in the Jeep adverts , if a car dealer was taking under the counter payments, he would have been found out and suffer the bad feelings of the local population. Gossip and jealousy abounds in small towns , I know this from experience . " Hey so you got a Jeep from so and so , paid more than the pegged price " before you know it everybody in the town knows what went on . Local car dealer is in the sh*t .
