    Well...

    If you look at the money that car salesman brings in on a commission during the hour or two it takes to sell a car,
    it probably sure would look like he rakes it in harder than Donald Trump.

    And that's what a lot of folks see us doing, raking it all in the half hour we ride the Z.
    They don't see any of the other stuff.

    Age old perception in this field. We all take cash, pay no taxes and it just rides around in our pocket in a big wad.
