I witnessed something I've never ever seen this weekend. I'm a car guy and any chance I get to go test drive, check and research cars... I do it.

This weekend I wanted to go test drive a Hellcat. I decided to head up to Phoenix on Saturday afternoon
I went to Bill Luke Chrysler/Dodge. This is a huge dealership in a shitty part of town (17/Camelback).

When I arrived, I couldn't find parking. The entire place was full of vehicles. There were also cars circling the lot looking to park. It was very weird.
There weren't any big "tent sale balloons" or anything like that. It appeared to just be a normal Saturday, except for the abnormal parking conditions.

Finally, I found a spot and I walked towards the used Hellcats.
I go to dealerships a lot. Even in the Arizona sun it only takes 3-5 minutes before a salesman is introducing himself.

I looked at these cars for 15 minutes without being bothered. Salesman on golf carts whisked past without saying one word. Not even hello. All were in a rush.
Finally, I got annoyed and walked inside. It. Was. Madness. There were HUNDREDS of people jammed into this sales floor. It looked like a scene out of The Wolf Of Wall Street on the trade floor.

Again, I stood in amazement as people whisked past me. Nobody said a word.
Eventually, I see an information desk in the middle of the room. I walk over ask

"what do I have to do to talk to a salesman."

She tells me...

"Please give me your name and number and we'll call you once someone is free. We've got a 15 minute wait."

"Yes sir. We have 57 car salesman on staff today and everyone is booked."

I've never seen anything like it. I asked her if they were having a special sale? "Nope, every weekend has been like this."
The Buyers:

As I mentioned this particular dealership is in a rough part of town. I would say 80-90% were Hispanic or African American.

I also noticed the particular youth of the group. Mostly late 20's to mid 40's.
Eventually, I got a salesman to help me. It was a Hispanic guy with an obvious accent. He was friendly but clearly in a rush.

He grabbed the keys for the Hellcat and told me that there was another person negotiating on this car already.

I didn't care, I just wanted to drive it.
Once in the car I asked what the hell was going on? He told me that all summer it had been this way. They sold 57 cars the day before...on a Friday!

We got talking politics and at first he didn't want to but once he did...

"It's the Trump economy man. You can say what you want but he wants to help all of us. I've never made more money than I am right now. We don't even work with wealthy buyers. It's almost all working class people. These people who hate Trump are dumb.
He continued..."they're mad he wants to build a wall? I always say to them, do you have a fence around your house? He's trying to protect the people who live in America!"

If the Democrats heard this man talking, they'd have called him a white supremacist. Lol!
The MAGA econony is REAL. It's not slowing down. It's actually picking up.

The wealth and easier credit have FINALLY made it into the lower socioeconomic levels and I got to witness firsthand the action.

There is no recession. This is just the beginning for our Nation.
For those wondering, I didn't buy the Hellcat. It was a 2016 Challenger Hellcat and while the power in the vehicle was mindboggling, the weight, height and poor handling pretty much guaranteed I'd kill myself in it.

I'll be holding out for a Ferrari when the time comes. 👌👍😊🇺🇸
