    I hope this is OK to ask on the forums :dunno:, (Admin - if not please feel free to delete this post) but after reading dozens of threads, everywhere I see comments on saving/having saved Tators Dodge. What is up with Tator's Dodge?

    Just wondering as I feel left out of the loop.:rolleyes::(

    Thanks!

    Okay, that explains that he got his dealership back, but what caused the problem in the first place...I've been wondering the same since I joined.

    theres a "5 star" Dodge dealership here locally that SHOULD be shut down. There the absolute WORST dealership I've EVER been to in my entire life. Myself and others I know have taken vehicles to them numerous times and they ALWAYS have trouble fixing any of the problems. There a total joke.

    Wow! As a former Chrysler stockholder (my family used to build them in Detroit and we were proud stockholders until they went private again - now I'm stuck with DCX) I'm shocked that they would treat someone who is such a major part of their flagship car like this!

    Chuck, keep up the good work and I'll call you if I need anything. I'm glad the Viper community can rally around such an important person like this!

    If I may revive an old thread... Hey Chuck - since your Grandfather started the business in 1914 and your father took over in 1953, I have one important question...


    ...Do you have any children?

    And that being asked, what are you plans for Tator Dodge's 100th Anniversary? That might be one to travel North for... :)

    Jeff
