In 1908 Leon Lyle and Frank Lake founded the Dowagiac Motor Car Company. By early 1909 the company was producing both cars and trucks; the largest truck was capable of carrying over a ton. Lake and Lyle were the inventive genius and the capable manager, respectively. The company folded soon after they both died in a streetcar accident in June 1909.
