Do you know where the geographic center of North America is?
In North Dakota!
We zoomed by this dignified obelisk:
Surrounded by scruffy buildings, piles of dirty snow...and close nearby, a Case farm equipment dealer.
My dad always thought that Case tractors were the center of the universe. Guess he was close.
Plus a signpost, so you know where to head next.
I wanted to give a shoutout to the Devils Lake Chrysler Center in Devils Lake, ND. Not only were they totally honest about our vehicle's condition and package...Jordan actually e-mailed photos to the Brick showing some of the truck's 'dings' and negative aspects! How many dealers will do that??
Jordan, our salesman, spent a lot of time pointing out features with the Brick, and explaining how they worked. (He did a lot of "what if this happens" problem-solving, too. Impressive.)
They treated us with politeness and respect...me included. (Sometimes the woman doesn't get this. Female Gentle Readers out there, you know what I'm talking about, don't you...) We had some trouble getting funds from our bank account wired -- and they were patient throughout.
We also got advice on good hotels (since we had to stay one more night, because of the wire transfer issues) and restaurants -- and they were right, on all counts.
We got a good deal on a great truck. It was nicely prepped, as well.
If you're looking for a quality vehicle at a good price, try them out. (It's even worth driving 30+ hours to get there!) Ask for Jordan; tell him the Bricks sent you.
