Car guys scratch and sniff at their posts. They turn around throughout the month and try to get that last up out the door and down the street. They burn out and burn up and die trying to get someone to burn gas. It's the way it's happened for years and the way it will always be. One day it's the middle of the month and everybody is working to make their paycheck and the next day it's over. On the last day your pulse shakes while you look at the chalkboard counting units sold. Eyes comparing worth and worthiness and wide eyed wondering when they'll get some rest

Why don't you run over here and rescue me? You could drive down in your car Why don't we both take a ride and turn that key We'll drive at sixty miles an hour.

60 Miles An Hour Lyrics. Why don't you run over here and rescue me? You could drive down in your car Why don't we both take a ride and turn that key We'll drive at sixty miles an hour. I'll be there for you when you want me to I'll stand by your side like I always do In the dead of night it'll be alright Because I'll be there for you when you want me to.

At 60 Miles An Hour Rolls-Royce Ad by David Ogilvy - one of the many profitable marketing & rare copywriting examples from our huge archive. Ironically, a BBDO ad for Pierce Arrow cars had used more or less the same slogan 25 years earlier.

Eyes comparing worth and worthiness and wide eyed wondering when they'll get some rest. The night fucks you like you're standing against a streetlamp. One minute you're off and the next you're all lit up and shining on the hood of a strangers' car with a thong around your ears. One minute it's the last day of the month and you need to sell one more car and the next minute it's midnight, December fucking first, and that's all. It's over. It rolls around on the ground like a cat masturbating. It rolls around on the ground looking inviting until it scratches you. It rolls around in the sunlight of morning, licking its end.

Most people are wary of checking out self-published authors. the mindset is, "If this book was good, the author wouldn't have to pay to have it printed himself." This has been my thinking, but this book is an exception. At a time when contemporary American writers are innocuous, this is a refreshing breath of air. it takes you someplace. It spits tiny episodes of the lives of car dealers and other various people at you. It sits in my bathroom, and is perfect for picking up and reading wherever. This book deserves to be published by a major house and sold in the main-stream.

I received this book as a gift for christmas and had little desire to read it at first. With some coaxing by my friend I took it with me on a ski trip. I began reading it as we approached the lodge and had a hard time putting it down. They went up the slopes without me for the first run! The characters are alive. The description vivid and refreshing. The book is well crafted. The author folds five lives into a very human tapestry. This is not the type of book you'd read if you are easilly offended by creative use of language, though maybe it should be. If you read Bukowski, Brautigan, or are a fan of the Beat Generation..pick this one up and you will not be let down! A true cult classic waiting to happen!

There was a time when a book like this one would have been burned by the thousands. Of course, there was never a time when this type of writing existed. It is strong, in your face, bold and direct. The characters are vivid and the story line a reflective glance into how we may have become the people we are. This is a story where words are played with in bizarre ways and we are brought full circle to stand and acknowledge ourselves for who we are. The author says it best in a quote (which he has obviously made up) at the begining of thie book; "Never hold any man to a standard of ethics of which you are incapable of reaching." The book runs its lifecycle along the lives of "car salesmen." New ones. Old ones. Retired ones. Not yet retired ones. Dead ones. And it finds a common thread between them and their lovers or lack of lovers. I applaud this crafty work and wait for more to read.

Based on the other reviews of this book, I though I was going to read a book about the car business that was both funny and insightful.

I have been in the business for over 7 years and found it neither.

It is in no way indicative of the people or the job that we do. It constantly harbors on death, an angry wife, retirement, a wasted life and annoying habits and idiosyncrasies that the characters possess.

It took 3 different tries to start and then finish this disjointed and utterly depressing diatribe and I can sadly say that I am the worse for having tried. (The only sketch that was worth reading was the last one, unfortunately it took wading through 131 other rambling sketches to get there-this was also, ironically the one that is listed on the web site as well as on the back cover of the book).

If you want to see a more realistic(albeit funnier) version of the car business, watch "Used Cars", "Suckers", "Slasher" or some other movie that shows that we all aren't waiting on the point at a car lot ready to put either a cigarette or the barrel of a gun in our mouths in an attempt to escape/end it all.

Do not buy this book if you are looking for sales training. It was not written for a simple mind. The author plays games with words which share insight into the characters he writes of. What I appreciated most was the way that the author allows the readers to form their own reference points for the characters; there is no race or age or overly descriptive information regarding the characters, yet they become vivid and further defined through self exploration by the reader. Very well done. I did not give it a five because there is always room for improvement. However, if I were to give a five to any book, this would most likely be the one. It's a 4.9, but I round down.

I was fishing for something to read on my business trip to Chicago when this clean cut, well dressed but completely drunken guy stood beside me in an airport mini-mart. He handed me a book he'd had in his jacket pocket and told me he wrote it and sort of walked away. (no click) I read it on the plane. I read it again three times during my trip. I believe the guy who gave me the book to be the author. He'd signed it prior with a very nice quip. I am amazed that this is the only book he's published and would buy anything I could find by him. Very clever writing. Nice character development. I am a better person for having read this book. Thak you Mr Ziegler for an incredible life story!

I was taken back immediately, from the very first sentence; "If silence. . ." I enjoy reading and always have companion (book) with me wherever I go. I'll go through two novels a week, sometimes more. "Pissing," I had to read over and again. What an absolute pleasure. Vivid characters. Intense imagery. Passive storyline, seems accidental. Not like most books with their deliberate movements, this book walks WITH you, like a friend, showing you his old neighborhood. What a great book!!!
I was thinking it was a novel or maybe (like another one of his books) a sales training type of book. I'm a fool. Should have read the reviews better. It's amazing the way the author uses words. His imagery is stunning. The characters are unique. This is definitely a book for any adult library. I bought mine as an e-book and now I'm buying a hardback to keep forever.
