The Dodge Farm

What is the Dodge Farm and how did the name come about?

The Youngblood’s have been running Dodge Trucks for over 7 decades now. In the late 80’s dad (Tony) picked up his first Bighorn. This was the start of the collection to come. Fast forward to the late 90’s and we start to see growth in the collection, new trucks coming and going. In 2004 while in college, I got hooked up with the Dodge Truck World website/forum. In meeting people in Georgia, through local meets or just discussing, they began to learn about all the antique trucks we had. Now keep in mind this was a group of modern Dodge pickups with many who never knew Dodge built in a big truck. Well a few months into this, they all started asking, can we have a show at dad’s and someone on the group called it the Dodge Farm. Well, we did have a show with people from all over the state joining in and from that time on, the Dodge Farm name stuck.

Just a portion of the group there that day along with our collection.

The Dodge Farm has seen many of truck come and many of truck go in the last 30+ years. Dad’s ’75 Bighorn that really started the collection back in 1989 is gone and made it’s way to Finland of all places! I’ve moved on from the trucks I had for the better part of the last 20 years and have a new project myself. My ’70 D300 relocated to SC and my ’71 Dodge Sweptline Special survivor made it’s way to Canada and just as of May 2021 across the auction block at Mecum for over $30,000!

So what’s going on with the Dodge Farm today? Well, the collection has shrunk but there is no limit of activity. We’ve currently got the following:
