In one scene in the film he is told he cannot smoke on the airplane. He delivers a rousing speech that inspires and sways those around him by making an appeal to American values. It is this strangely persuasive attitude that inspires a Temecula, California dealership to hire him. Don Ready descends upon the town with some of his best salesmen. It takes a small about of time before the failing dealership is flourishing. The business is populated by a number of interesting characters. Among them are Brent, the owner's son who looks 30 but is actually 10, and the violent salesman Dick Lewiston.
