  • Founder - Edd Kirby
    Edd Kirby

    Ed Kirby originally founded Adcox-Kirby Chevrolet in 1953 in Chattanooga, TN. In 1985, after a 30 year partnership, Ed Kirby moved to Dalton, buying out Dennis Brent Chevrolet Jeep. In 1994 Edd Kirby retired at which time we became the only One Price No Haggle No Hassle store in the area. In 2000 we added the Chrysler Brand and our name was ammended to Edd Kirby's Adventure Chevrolet Chrysler Jeep to better reflect our new kinder gentler No Hassle way of selling cars and trucks.

    Ed Kirby left a lifetime legacy of fairness and impeccable honesty in business. The high integrity and "my word is my bond" character that was forged growing up in the depression years has been instilled in the Kirby family and has motivated us to take care of the customers who purchase vehicles from us no matter what. As my father once said, "Son, if you can't afford to take care of your customers, you don't deserve to stay in business" We take that seriously at Edd Kirby's Adventure and strive every day to "deserve" to be here.

    Joe Kirby was born after Ed Kirby was already a Chevrolet Dealer, so Joe has literally grown up in the car business. WOW has it ever changed in the last 50 years! The vehicles are so well made today, so well equipped, and so much safer and more dependable, and yes they're quite a bit more complicated too. Today we use technicians, not mechanics, to service and diagnose the vehicle of today, which is not surprising as these vehicles have more computer power on board than the Apollo spacecraft had that went to the moon!

    It's an exciting time to be in the automobile business. There are so many advances in technology that allow us to bring a better value to our customers than was ever possible in the past. The incredible deals we are able to offer, the financing, and the service after the sale are all improved by staying on the cutting edge of technology and never losing our motivation to "take care of our customers." Enthusiastically happy customers are what motivate us and we invest in the people, tools and technology to do it better than anyone else in order to give you the best price and service anywhere - right here in Dalton and now in Chattanooga too!

  • CFO - Becky Kirby
    Becky Kirby


    True to this concerned moment captured here where she was exclaiming "a BEE!", Becky has been the company troubleshooter since leaving her career with IBM and coming full time to Adventure in the early 90's. Whether it's a 'bee' in the showroom or the service department, or a financial 'bee' getting ready to sting someone, Becky will find it and take the actions to shoo it away. Becky makes sure that all the hard work each department does produces a good result for Adventure so that we can keep providing our unbeatable values for many years to come.
