Around one hundred people and forty Dodge Brothers cars, made from 1914 to 1938, appeared at the 2016 Dodge Brothers Club national event in and around Budd Lake, New Jersey. It was a rare opportunity to see the durable, highly-regarded cars in action, climbing hills and cruising down the road. The event host, Richard Seabury, wrote that around 28 Dodge Bros. cars attended each of the tours; others showed up on Friday for a show.
On Sunday, the first day of the event, there was a tour to Waterloo Village, a historic town and elevation lock on the Morris Canal, kept as it was around 1920.
On Monday, the group visited High Point State Park, the highest point in New Jersey. Many of the cars made the climb (most of which aren’t shown in this photo); none got into trouble.
At Fosterfields Living Historic Farm on Wednesday, a fine photo of all the Dodge Brothers cars did not quite come out — the camera focused on the wrong thing — but you can see one of the cars touring the property.
At the Sterling Hill Mine on Friday, you can see the wide variety of cars, and that you could have colors other than black.
