Kokomo is known as the City of Firsts. This is because of its world-renowed automotive heritage and its history of technological innovations. One of the firsts to come from Kokomo was America’s First Car designed by Elwood Haynes in 1894. I guess it is only natural that Button Dodge should decide to sell cars in Kokomo, Indiana.
