DPETCA Mission Statement

 We are dedicated to the preservation and restoration of 1948-1953 Dodge and Fargo trucks of all applications. The only true necessity, in order to become a member of this organization, is a great desire to preserve these wonderful, historic vehilces. We hope to consistantly increase membership so as to create a network of resource support for restoration, and to hold annual gatherings of these trucks. We also hope to, one day, be able to hold regional tours with these trucks

July 24, 2005
: New officers were voted in and the number of board members was reduced from 5 members down to 3. This was done to streamline the operation and improve efficiency. The new officers are Bob Koch as President, Dean Haueter as Vice President and Bill Gunter as Secretary/Treasurer. A copy of the full discussion is here for those that missed the business chat, which used our newly installed chat page. Also discussed were the possibilities of a monthly truck chat to share information about our trucks and ask questions, the possibilites of a quarterly or month newsletter and a general discussion of regional meets.The issue of merchandise was deferred so that the new board members can discuss some new possibilities and then offer those to the club members.
