New lot for Ram trucks

Under the largest American flag in the state, Salem Chrysler Jeep Dodge at 400 Legacy Lane is expanding its new truck parking lot, owner John Kufleitner said. The dealership opened two years ago and has already outgrown its original site plans. Kufleitner said the lot will become the new “Ram Truck Center” capable of holding an additional 120 to 150 vehicles. He said the expansion is fueled by demand. “We’ve exploded, we’ve only been here two years,” he said. R.T. Vernal Raving and Excavating of North Lima started on the project, which adjoins the dealership to the east, about three weeks ago. (Salem News photo by Larry Shields)
