1908 was an important year for the Burton Family. In that year General Motors was formed to manufacture a new invention, the automobile. Fred Burton and his father, Captain Theodore Burton, decided to enter the automobile business. Also, in that year, Fred's son Irwin G. Burton was born. From that time there has always been a descendent of Captain Theodore and his son Fred in the automobile business on Delmarva. David Burton was the fourth generation automobile dealer and current Owner/President Charles Burton is the fifth generation! The Burtons and the automobile have been together since the very beginning.

Over time there have been many turns and changes in the history of our company. The first cars sold were Maxwell, followed by Buick, Ford, Vim Truck, Briscoe, Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Navistar, Bluebird Bus and the Chrysler line. In 1962, the National Automobile Dealers Association named Irwin G. Burton the Outstanding Dealer in the nation. All of this has been quite an experience but our success is not just due to the effort of the Burtons but to that of so many others who, over the years, have built the company into what you see today.
