    what the problem here

    What do you think about PBY renting out service bays to brand specialist mechanics? It might be good use of the bay areas that they can't seem to generate enough earnings from. Upon preliminary look at quarterly report, it looked like the service side lost money. Cars need less service these days, and when they do, their owners probably perceive that they'd best bring their car to a brand, or at least country-of-manufacture, specialist. PBY would be able to supply some parts to the indy's who rent the bays, but PBY would have to work for it. If they don't, the indy will get their parts down the street. No matter what, PBY MUST, I repeat MUST, modernize their image, and think outside their present toolbox, to survive, IMHO.
