Not quite! His name is Ray Skillman, he and his son own around 17 dealerships in Indiana. Ray has a pretty awesome story. He didn't come from money or anything close to it. It all started for him as a used car salesman. In 1979, Ray moved to Indianapolis. Hed been buying used cars here from Oldsmobile dealer Charlie Stuart for years. Stuart used to let Skillman pay after hed sold them. Even more generously, Stuart helped his son Chuck partner with Skillman and borrow the money to establish their own dealership just north of Greenwood on U.S. 31. That dealership was a Buick GMC store which is where Ray's main office is today.

Ray bought out Chuck in 1987, and since then, hes expanded every few years, adding property and car brands. As of right now, Ray has 17 stores, 8 brands, and 5,210 vehicles in stock. Not bad for a self-described hillbilly from Owensboro, Ky.

You can see his classic collection here:

They look innocent but Harley is a riot! I could go on and ON about the things he has destroyed.

Just a quick list off the top of my head...

iPhone charger x4
MacBookPro charger x2
Sunglasses x3
Prescription Glasses x1
Wallet (debit card, license, etc..) x2
Apt fee upon move out $600
Our Hummer H2's interior is attacked weekly

That's my life with a crazy chocolate lab. I wouldn't trade him for anything though. He will be 3 in August and is doing much better with tearing my stuff up. LOL.

I had a boxer years ago that made an inch long hole in every section of my sofa and basically de-stuffed the entire thing. I walked in and it looked like knee high snow throughout the entire room. He also had a thing for pagers (this was before cell phones were popular)... he actually ate one and destroyed 3. One went missing and I couldn't find it anywhere... 2 days later, I started seeing pieces of bright green plastic in the yard. Thank God nothing got stuck. What is it with dogs and plastic stuff???

Boxers are awesome dogs! Who knows what the obsession is but plastic and leather seems to get the best of them!

And carpet! That's what the extra charges were for my apt. Harley ripped 6 ft by 2.5 ft up in my bedroom. I was soooo mad. Lol.

I have a cat... Having second thoughts because she thinks she's the boss.
Otherwise, I LOVE weightlifting, love driving my car, love playing xbox... I'm pretty much a "17-year-old-27 year old"... Haha

I occasionally turn on my ham radios or go out with the Nikon to get various pictures.

For those of us who bring the dog(s) along for a ride through the driveup, check out this 40 second video of

And when you go through the driveup at any Starbucks, ask for a Puppuchino. It's whipped cream in a cup. No joke, they really offer them (and they're free).

Ok, here's a selfie of my travel buddy. He's a pound puppy and about 14-15 years old, Border Collie and/or Australian Cattle Dog. You'll lose a staring contest with him.

I grew up with border collies. Incredible dogs.

Have some hermit craps, but not sure they count as pets since it's about the same as having a pet rocks that only move when I'm not around.
