Best Of 2015: New Domestic Car Dealer

Philip Long opened his first auto dealership in 1945, shortly after returning from 120 successful missions as a Hellcat fighter pilot in World War II. Over the next 70 years, that first dealership evolved into an entire Phil Long "family" of dealerships, including Ford, Chevy, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Hyundai, Kia and ValuCar. Yet our readers still think of Phil Long Ford first when they want to buy American. Fun fact: When Long passed away in 2001, his successor Jay Cimino campaigned for and received Colorado Historic Landmark status for the "Phil Long Ford" sign at the top of Motor City. — Jill Thomas
