You can go home again. Rambler automobiles learnt that in the summer of 2002. In 1902 a man named Thomas Jeffery sold his first car, a Rambler at the auto show in Chicago. The Model C car, the nation's second mass-produced car was manufactured at his factory in Kenosha. July 23rd-27th, 2002 over 1000 show cars now residing around the world returned home to Kenosha for the Rambler Centennial - A 100th Anniversary Celebration of the Rambler.
The Kenosha Area Convention & Visitors Bureau welcomed the AMCRC, other AMC clubs and Rambler owners from as far away as Sweden, Australia, Africa, Canada and Mexico to the Kenosha Area. The visitors enjoyed the warm hospitality of Kenosa's lakefront community, located between Chicago and Milwaukee. Dennis Gage and his "My Classic Car" show, a nationally aired television program coverd the car show.
Jeffery first set up shop in Kenosha in December 1900. In 1902, the first 1,500 Rambler cars were produced. This was one-sixth of all motorcars produced in the U.S. Kenosha has been known as an auto manufacturing city ever since. Today, Kenosha remains the home of the DaimlerChrysler Kenosha Engine Plant, one of the oldest automotive production sites in the country. Millions of vehicles and engines have been produced on this site.
