A Cincinnati family steeped both in local college hoops and vehicle sales has purchased a dealership to call its own.
Mike Kelsey was born into the car business. His grandfather sold Mercuries and Lincolns in the 1950s, and his father worked for Jake Sweeney. Kelsey himself sold his first car after graduating from high school and was hooked. He went on to attend Xavier University on a basketball scholarship but got married as a sophomore.
“I figured I could make enough selling cars to give up my scholarship and pay my way through school, and I sold cars,” he told me.
