Old wrenches and parts guys tend to stay at least at BMW dealers IME.
Keep in mind that most employees in the industry know the other dealers and how they operate. A popular local dealer sold after years in business and every employee worth his salt left during the conversion because of the new owner's reputation. I've seen it in my industry many times. Upper management it tested and replaced if they don't work well with the new business model. Sales leaves as the commissions structure is changed. Etc. etc. etc. I have past consulting clients that I wouldn't work for, ever. They say a good merger is one where you keep your talent, your clients and your profits. While not everyone is worth keeping, if most of the familiar faces are gone the new owners probably screwed up.
