    My son needs to do some work on a book for an assignment at school. He chose the Dodge Brothers book ( Dodge Brothers, The Men, the Motor Cars, and the Legacy). I am amazed of what Horace and John were able to accomplished during their short lives. They made a boat that had a 1600 HP motor!! They made parts for a cannon. They were AMAZING employers and best of all, they left a huge legacy. I can imagine them making a Hellcat with at least 1200 HP.

    I am pretty sure that they will NOT let those 2 things happen if they were alive !! lol

    And they will never go with the "allocation" process either !!

    The Dodge Brothers made everything except for the chassis and the wheels, from 1902 until 1913. Between 1902 and 1903 Ford owed them $10,000 dollars, instead of paying them back, John asked for 10% of the stocks.
    Ford lied about "renting" the Dodge Brothers plant. The brothers were always suppliers, not employees.
    Eventually the brothers took Ford to court because Ford did not want to pay to its stockholders.
    Very interesting book, if you have time to read it is a great book.
