Life is short, and it was particularly so for John and Horace Dodge, who died of influenza and cirrhosis, respectively, when they were in their 50s. The brothers lived life to the fullest, however, having so much fun that they were looked down upon by the Detroit elite.

After working for Ford Motor Co., the brothers started up their own manufacturing company in early 1900; this was the source of their wealth and the pleasures it afforded them. It is also the original source of today's great Dodge cars that keep the good times rolling.

Want to become a part of the fun-loving Dodge family? At Keffer Chrysler Jeep Dodge, located at 8214 E. Independence Blvd. in Charlotte, it would be our pleasure to set you up with a new Dodge. Come try one on for size today.
