OK, after doing some thinking and some research here it is. Hope it is at least half as hard as the last one.

We all know that Dodge has used the Rams head as a symbol for many years. The question is: Why?

Something about a trip through the desert in the 1900's in Dodge Brothers Cars.. Ramming through the dunes and dragging the oil pans?

Sorry Chris, that isn't right. Not according to me source, which I will post a link to whenever someone gets it or ya'll give up.

IIRC, I read that when the sculptor was creating the ram hood ornament, the ram had been chosen because of it's sure footed ability. I would have to check my sources to see if that is correct though.

Okay, I found the story about Fairbanks telling walter chrysler that if you seen a ram charging down on you, you would see its horns and think "Dodge"!

Ok, I was hoping it would last longer but am not surprised it didn't. I am just not that good on Dodge trivia. I am going to give it to dodgerammit. You got the next question. Here is the link I got it from.
