Dealership changes name but not commitment

Body

At 65, Rick Jones said he wanted to make sure the Buick-GMC dealership he built and has operated for the past 32 years continued with the same commitment to “trust and integrity” when it came time for him to step away.

That’s why the El Reno dealership is now known as Dorsey-Jones Buick-GMC.

At 32, Cole Dorsey hasn’t been in the auto business as long as Jones, but he’s been in it as long as he can remember.

Dorsey grew up in it.
