History

History

It began with an entrepreneur’s quest…

William J. Sames was born in Hartford, Connecticut & immigrant parents who worked on the famous Colt Estate. He studied insurance and Spanish and ventured to Cuba with a business partner to build their fortunes. W.J. Sames moved on to work with Archeologist Edward Thompson in Yucatan.  He developed pneumonia in Monterrey and his doctor advised him to go to Laredo to be nursed to health. Soon thereafter, W. J. struck a partnership with J.R. Moore managing a property brokerage and wholesale business. In 1910, they opened the Laredo Auto Sales Company, the first auto dealership in Texas. Their inventory started with three Ford Model- Ts that were put together in a grain warehouse behind their wholesale business. Sames and Moore decided to divide the businesses with a coin toss. Sames won Laredo Auto Sales and thus began the legacy of Sames Motor Company.
