Like the 1970s TV character, Buck Rogers led others — maybe not through space exploration, but through the out of this world twists and turns of car salesmanship. Rogers, general manager and part owner of Payson’s Chapman Auto Center, is retiring at the end of this month, setting off to explore new areas of life away from the selling floor. “Buck has always been a steady leader, a reliable guide through the business’ good and bad times,” said Tom Whatley, Chapman’s sales manager.
