I think this would depend on the objective of the site.

Does the dealership wish to market cars over the internet or does it plan to
market the dealership itself and thereby convince potential buyers to "come
on down"?

I'd certainly get in touch with their marketing department first. It seems
that if they are spending a lot of money on traditional advertising just to
send people to a lame site then they are screaming for help from someone who
knows how to work the internet.

There's money for a developer there somewhere!
