Dave Smith: King of Kellogg?

August 2nd, 2010

He has a massive complex of sales locations on the east side of town, and parking lots full of trucks on the west.


  1. Gigi says:

    Is he a descendant of Noah Kellogg?

  2. MN Roxanne says:

    I see the pink lic. plates even…. looking feminine on these testosterone-mobiles!

  3. His lots might fill the town of Kellog, But his ads over run Television and Radio spots across the Northwest!!!

    • Lori says:

      He was the first big internet car sales biz. Isn’t he the biggest dealer in the world or something like that because of the internet sales? Dave died a few years ago and his son now owns & operates the business.

      • Big Scott says:

        Correction : Dave Smith died about 17 years ago in a boating accident in North Idaho on Lake Ponderay and his Three son’s now own & operates the business.

        • Lori says:

          Three sons… did not know that. I remember his death being a boating related accident.

        • Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

          My Three Sons. Remember that old show? That’s what your remark made me think of. Sorry to hear about their dad though.

          • I didn’t realize he had passed. I think I vaguely remember checking out the website when I first starting using the net back in 99 or so, since I needed a car, in the end I bought from here in Montana, but still drove all the way to Missoula, may as well have gone to Kellogg

  4. Candice in Alabama says:

    Interesting picture of the trucks – Looks almost like one of those repeating mirror reflection images – to infinity and beyond!

  5. Janine says:

    An interesting story from a car lot…whoda thunk it?

  6. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    This almost looks like the mountains of West Virginia to me. Does this dealership only sells one kind of truck? He sure does have enough of them. Must be a popular truck out that way.
