    Chrysler tells local dealerships to stop their engines.

    At least 17 local Chrysler dealers will close up shop as the car company eliminates about 25 percent of its dealerships across the country.

    Chrysler LLC told a bankruptcy court Thursday that it plans to eliminate 789 of its dealers as part of its restructuring process.

    The automaker has about 3,200 dealers but said that's too many.  It wants to have stronger, more profitable dealers with better facilities.

    Many area Chrysler dealers learned Thursday that they're closing shop.

    Chrysler spokeswoman Kathy Graham said the company will notify specific dealers before commenting publicly.

    The dealers likely will have a right to appeal to get off the list. The move could have a devastating impact on cities across the U.S., costing jobs and tax revenue.
