Odd the hood has louvres. DB's don't have them. I have a late 1915 which has no louvres.

The picture makes me wonder if the men in front of the car were the Dodge Brothers? With all the history of them there should be a warning sign not to mess with them or their car!!!! Bud in the land of potholes!!

I don't think the fellows standing beside the car are John and Horace Dodge.

The site I pulled the photo from led me to believe it was the brothers. Has to be true it was on the web!

Nobody knows for sure why the Dodge brothers chose the star of David as a part of their logo. They were not Jewish, and they never said why.

Perhaps it was a symbol of solidarity in an attempt to show support for an oppressed group of people?

We may never know the real reason...

"The symbol represents Solomon's Seal, the sign of interconnected spirits, which aptly describes the Dodge brothers."

Thanks for that Richard!

"What distinguishes a Seal of Solomon from a Star of David is the two triangles are interlaced giving the appearance of a 3-dimensional figure. This was said in the Testament of Solomon to make demons confused and dizzy, unable to do Solomon any harm."

Horace Dodge worked at the Leland, Faulconer & Norton machine company early on. He and John began supplying components to R. E. Olds, Henry Ford and Henry Leland for Oldsmobile, Ford And Cadillac. So many of the early greats crossed paths. Henry Leland had worked for Samuel Colt. He named one of his car endeavors after Abraham Lincoln whom he had admired and even voted for.

I toured Meadow Brook Hall on Tuesday, near Auburn Hills. They have several four cylinder Dodges on display there, and a '47 Dodge pickup they use for the grounds. If you haven't been there, it's a neat tour. It shows how the wealthy really lived.
