Dodge history

Postby DB69 » Thu Oct 27, 2016 1:40 pm

I am actually a couple of days late with this post, but 2 days ago was John F. Dodge's 152nd birthday. He and his brother Horace E. Dodge
are the reasons we are driving the trucks , cars, and vans that most of us drive every day.
My favorite quote from John Dodge is one of my most favorite quotes that I have heard in my entire life.
In September 1914 John Dodge was being interviewed by a magazine writer who was going to write am article in the magazine he wrote for.
At the end of the interview the man asked John Dodge why he and Horace had decided to build The Dodge Brothers Motor Car that would be made
starting in November of 1914. John Dodge replied:
"Think of all the Ford owners who will someday want to own an automobile" :lol:

That is the history I wanted to share today. Sorry it is late!
I have seen that tidbit in several books that I have, and I enjoy sharing it with all my Dodge friends!
