It was way back in 1914 that the Dodge brothers launched the brand, and now, 100 years later, the company is celebrating their birthday in style. They brought out cars that haven’t seen the light of day in a good many years and let journalists take them out for a drive. From 75 year old classics to vintage muscle to more modern entries, they were all on shined up and on display.
Check out this video montage of some beautiful cars, and hear from the folks at Dodge talking about how the company started, how it’s stayed relevant for 100 years, and where it’s heading in the future with cars like the all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.
