50 YEARS AND COUNTING – Kevin Klossner, Regional Manager of Ford Motor Company’s Kansas City Division (left), presented Harold and Robin Fugate with a plaque to honor 50 years as a family owned Ford Dealership. Fugate Motors began business on Sept. 5, 1963, at its downtown location and moved to their current home on Hwy. 54 in 1965. Klossner told the Fugates that there are very few dealerships which have achieved this honor. The average life of a new car dealership is now something less than 10 years.
