i have read a few of the back and forth posts about GB or AP? and I have to chuckle. It's nice to see people like "their city" better.....but hey people, simmer down. I've been all over WI and I love all of it compared to any other state around us. It's all realative!

What about Bergstrom? I use to sell cars there for a couple of years and made a good amount of money. Everyone I worked with was great and quite loyal to the company and each other.

Back to the Appleton/G.B. question. I lived about 10 years in Appleton (9th grade until I was about 24), and actually didn't mind it. I mean sure it has its downfalls (but any small town/city will have that) with there not being all that much to do...but I have lived all over the country and the nicest people that I have met have been from Appleton. The schools are also great in Appleton too so if you have children that is something to think about for sure. Like it has been mentioned before that Green Bay is old and shows its age. There are more rundown (not quite ghetto...but in central WI standards...ghetto) and that means that crime is going to be a bit higher and more problems for finding a good school.

My choice (quite obvious from above) is Appleton hands down.

You're right my definition of ghetto is way different from someone's in Centeral WI. It's all relative.

I'm not talking about selling cars. I've done that (and for Bergstrom actually, at the high line stores). I'm talking about the mfg headquarters like mazda, toyota, honda, aftermarket performance businesses, racing teams, design studio's, places like Edmunds... that's the real car business. Bergstrom and other dealerships isn't the car business, it's the retail buisness. This is the car business, and all that's in SC.
