Name that com­pany

Houston Chronicle - - BUSINESS -

I was cre­ated by the same en­tre­pre­neur who also founded Waste Man­age­ment, Repub­lic Ser­vices and Ex­tended Stay Amer­ica — and who has owned the Florida Mar­lins, the Mi­ami Dol­phins and the Florida Pan­thers. Af­ter he bought and ex­panded Block­buster Video and sold it for $8.4 bil­lion in 1994, he started buy­ing car fran­chises, and I be­came the first na­tion­wide car dealer in Amer­ica. Today, based in Fort Laud­erdale, I sport a mar­ket value top­ping $5 bil­lion. I re­cently boasted more than 360 new-ve­hi­cle fran­chises and more than 26,000 em­ploy­ees. I’ve sold more than 11 mil­lion ve­hi­cles. Who am I?
