1. I would think that the car dealer should have done what the jeweler did.

Make sure the check would clear the bank before you let the man drive away in your Porsche.

5. Apparently

desperate to sell cars. If I were in the market for a car right now, I could probably hammer out a great deal.

3. There's a Porsche dealer in Destin ?

I remember when the population was ~500, and the public library consisted of maybe a couple of hundred donated paperbacks.

9. Rich "sportsmen" originally went there for the fishing.

Fishing boats, restaurants, and motels were almost the only businesses in town when I lived there. Then the condo developers moved in, and there were many, many cycles of boom and bust in the condominium market. Now there's hardly a square inch unpaved.

14. That' before St. Joe sold out to developers

Actually, they sold most of their land to the Mormons, but that area is now filled with high priced houses and condos.

11. The guy is from Wewahitchka

That should have been a clue to the Porsche salesman.
