About Us

Our History

The Charlon Family arrived in Ridgecrest in 1945. We started with a small repair shop in Ridgecrest, which eventually added an International Dealership. Over the years the Charlon's have offered several different makes of new and used vehicles from several different locations. Beginning in 1981 the Charlon's brought The Ford Motor Company brand to the Indian Wells Valley and High Desert and has proudly served the area for 39 years.

JCF has supported groups such as Junior High and High School Rodeo, a number and variety of High School sports, Desert Empire Fairgrounds, High Desert Women's Center, youth sports, and the list goes on and on with many other organizations. We are proud to support these organizations and hundreds of others throughout the years of being in business. Over the years JCF has organized and participated in efforts to collecting clothes, food, money and supplies whenever the need arises.
