DODGE

DODGE

The Dodge Brothers started in the transportation business in America by making Conestoga wagons --- yes, the wagons which crossed the country under real horsepower, taking settlers from east-to-west. The Brothers both died young after getting into the car business and their wives took over the company which led to much intrigue. To this day, no one I know --- and I know a lot of smart car people --- can explain why the company's logo is in the shape of the Mogen David, or Jewish Star. Anyone out there know?
