Back in 1986, Ned Nelson structured his VW/Audi/Dodge dealership along the Jefferson Davis Highway in Fredericksburg, VA. He had a bountiful business until falling out in 1990. However, in 1991, Raymond Macananny was contacted by Dodge to run the business, and happily moved his RV dealership from Maryland to the Fredericksburg location. The dealership was then renamed Safford Dodge/RV.
Then in 2002, Macananny retired and Jim Gramm and David Blum were brought into the business. With a great reputation already placed upon the dealership through excellent customer service and active community involvement, the two businessmen had an easy adjustment. Due to extreme growth over the next two years, the original space was outgrown, where they then moved to Mallard Road on Labor Day 2004.
About five years later, after acquiring a Chrysler and Jeep franchise, Safford Dodge was renamed Safford CJDR of Fredericksburg; becoming the Chrysler dealer in Fredericksburg! Then, in 2010 Jim Bethard joined the crew as a partner, thus gaining the FIAT franchise.
