DIVIt was 1900 when Horace and John Dodge founded the Dodge Brothers Company, in a machine shop in Detroit, Michigan. The high-quality components they produced advanced the dawn of the American automotive industry, appearing in the famous Curved Dash Olds and Henry Ford’s Model A. Soon, the brothers became the exclusive supplier to Ford, a position they would hold for over a decade before striking on their own in 1913 to produce their first car a year later./divDIV /divDIVIn Dodge 100 Years, renowned automotive journalist Matt DeLorenzo provides an unrivaled chronicle of Dodge throughout the past century. Starting with the company’s modest beginnings in the 1900s, DeLorenzo recounts the brothers’ decision to venture into full auto manufacturing, their untimely deaths in 1920, and the company’s purchase by Chrysler in 1928. The book’s rich history also tells the tale of Dodge’s role in the “arsenal of democracy” during World War II and its iconic lineup during the late 1950s. The Dodge story is not without its struggles, though: while the division played a key part in the muscle-car wars of the 1960s and early ’70s, the oil crisis of 1973 took its toll on Dodge and Chrysler as other manufacturers moved toward more efficient models. But under the strong leadership of Lee Iacocca from 1979 onward, Dodge reasserted itself with such vehicles as the K-car and the Caravan minivan. The Dodge story wouldn’t be complete without speaking to its iconic performance cars like the Viper, Challenger, and Charger, as well as what’s in store for its future as indicated by the innovative Dart. Dodge 100 Years is more than a tale of classic American perseverance; it is a celebration of one of America’s most beloved and enduring automotive brands./div

From the Chrysler Six of 1924 to the front-wheel-drive vehicles of the 70s and 80s to the minivan, Chrysler boasts an impressive list of technological "firsts." But even though the company has catered well to a variety of consumers, it has come to the brink of financial ruin more than once in its seventy-five-year history. How Chrysler has achieved monumental success and then managed colossal failure and sharp recovery is explained in Riding the Roller Coaster, a lively, unprecedented look at a major force in the American automobile industry since 1925. Charles Hyde tells the intriguing story behind Chrysler-its products, people, and performance over time-with particular focus on the company's management. He offers a lens through which the reader can view the U.S. auto industry from the perspective of the smallest of the automakers who, along with Ford and General Motors, make up the "Big Three." The book covers Walter P. Chrysler's life and automotive career before 1925, when he founded the Chrysler Corporation, to 1998, when it merged with Daimler-Benz. Chrysler made a late entrance into the industry in 1925 when it emerged from Chalmers and Maxwell, and further grew when it absorbed Dodge Brothers and American Motors Corporation. The author traces this journey, explaining the company's leadership in automotive engineering, its styling successes and failures, its changing management, and its activities from auto racing to defense production to real estate. Throughout, the colorful personalities of its leaders-including Chrysler himself and Lee Iacocca-emerge as strong forces in the company's development, imparting a risk-taking mentality that gave the company its verve.
