The Dort Motor Car Company of Flint, Michigan, built automobiles from 1915–1924. Dort used Lycoming-built engines to power their vehicles. Dort Motor Car Company grew from Durant-Dort Carriage Company founded in 1886 by William C. Durant and J. Dallas Dort. They remained business partners until about 1915. Durant-Dort Carriage Company was dissolved in 1924. It may have continued to own the buildings plant and machinery used by Dort Motor Car. Dort and the remaining stockholders took over the carriage business. They incorporated Dort Motor Car Company and began to use some of the same plant to manufacture Dort cars buying in engines from Lycoming. Carriage production ended in 1917. Dort shipped 9,000 cars in its first year. Read more at

A stock certificate is issued by businesses, usually companies. A stock is part of the permanent finance of a business. Normally, they are never repaid, and the investor can recover his/her money only by selling to another investor. Most stocks, or also called shares, earn dividends, at the business's discretion, depending on how well it has traded. A stockholder or shareholder is a part-owner of the business that issued the stock certificates.
