So what happens when you try?  "Doesn't run" covers a multitude of

First one:

python Car Salesperson.py
python: can't open file 'Car': [Errno 2] No such file or directory
davea at think:~/temppython$

The fix for this one is to put quotes around the script name.  Or to
escape the blanks.  Or even better to rename the file so it doesn't have
spaces in it.

Please be specific.  You're running some OS, you launch some particular
version of Python, you give it some commandline, and you get some
unexpected result.  Use a lot of copy/paste and it's not too painful.
