Interesting. I went to high school with George Dorris's granddaughter.

I was on a tour recently at an old lumber mill, and they had a Dorris truck! Don't recall the year of it.

Here is a picture of a 1917 Dorris sedan on display at the St. Louis Museum of Transportation and another picture of a 1924 Dorris touring car and Dorris truck displayed at the 2017 St. Louis AACA Easter car show (this year's show has been cancelled like everything else).

Here are pictures of a 1909 Dorris touring car that was displayed by George P. Dorris III (grandson of George Preston Dorris) at the 2018 Brass & Nickel show at the St. Louis Museum of Transportation.

Thanks for posting those, Mark. I have largely stopped taking pictures at car shows, but I am always glad to see them. :D
