The Tuttle-Click Story begins in 1923 when Holmes P. Tuttle started an adventurous journey from Oklahoma to California. After hitchhiking and jumping on trains, he made it to California and began working in the Parts Department of a Ford Dealership in Los Angeles. Twenty-three years later, he opened his first dealership.
By the mid-1960s, he owned multiple dealerships and both his son, Robert Tuttle, and grand-nephew, James Click, Jr., were members of his Sales Team. The two competed fiercely, propelling both of them to success. In 1977, Bob and Jim decided to harness their competitive natures and complementary personalities to create Tuttle-Click Automotive Group.
