    I had the impression that he set up the GMAC fraud because he was already in over his head with something that preceded the events of the film.

    If that didn't, a whole dealership full of styled-with-a-T-square "downsized" FWD Oldsmobiles sure did.

    A 98 Regency of that era was my first "nice" car. I'd snap one of those up if it was as clean as the ones they filmed.

    Pete Oatess did. For a while anyway. They cornered him in San Jose.

    I personally knew a guy running a similar dealership scam, and he ended his own life rather than face the consequences. It was sad.
