    Greg Loudon

    Owner

    I have worked at the dealership since I was 11 years old! I started off sweeping floors, emptying the trash and cleaning bathrooms. Over the years, I worked on the wash rack, detailing cars, helped in the auto body shop, worked in parts and service and eventually got into sales. In September of 2005, I purchased the Ford dealership my grandfather Abe, along with my father Walt, established it in 1928. I am proud to say that Loudon Motors Ford has been providing our community with vehicles for 90 years and have sold cars, trucks, vans and SUVs in 49 different states and 6 countries! Don’t drive to regret! Make the short drive to Minerva and I guarantee you’ll be glad you did!
