The Dort Automobile Company in Michigan

I came across this website while just browsing the web and I thought it added a facet of history to the Car industry.

automobile - car
carriage - wagon to carry people 
pioneers - the start of something big 
fledging - a young bird, used in this context as starting out 

What did this company manufacture when it was started?
Who started the company?
Where was it located?  
What years was it active?
When did they switch to making cars?
What company did the founders purchase? 
What were the prices of the various models? 

Homework: You live in 1915 and are at the Chicago Auto Show.  Write a letter to your family about the cars that you see there.   Include information about the Dort and which one you like best.
