Love, and the smell of motor oil, are in the air as Blake Humphrey and Jackie

                 Rohner start their Journey of a Lifetime

  What:    Dodge is helping one couple speed up the start of their "Journey"
           together by throwing a winter wedding at the 100th Chicago Auto
           Show on Valentine's Day as part of the brand's "Journey of a
           Lifetime" contest.

           Contest winners Blake Humphrey and Jackie Rohner of Rock Island,
           Ill., will be surrounded by more than 1,000 cars on display at
           the largest auto show in North America when they get hitched in
           front of 100 of their closest friends and family on Feb. 14. The
           couple will walk down the aisle to the music of a Journey cover
           band, then start their journey as man and wife in their all-new
           2009 Dodge Journey, a vehicle that blends the practicality of a
           minivan, the capability of a sport-utility vehicle (SUV) and the
           overall efficiency of a passenger car into an all-new "right-
           sized" crossover, perfect for a newlywed couple.

  Who:     The wedding couple, Blake Humphrey and Jackie Rohner,
           of Rock Island, Ill.

  When:    Thursday, Feb. 14, 2008

  Where:   McCormick Place -- Dodge Display
           Lake Shore Drive at 23rd St
           Chicago, IL 60616

  Details: Pre-wedding coverage begins at approx. 6 a.m.
           -- The Right Road: Catch Blake and Jackie's final wedding day
              preparations from finishing touches on the wedding dress and
              tuxedo, to hair and makeup, etc. The beautiful bride will
              literally start her journey on the right "road" since the
              aisle runner will look just like a road, yellow median lines
              and all.

           Wedding ceremony begins at approx. 7 a.m.
           -- When You Love a Woman: Blake and Jackie will tie the knot
              right on the auto show floor as 100 of their friends and
              family members look on. Witness the newlywed couple's first
              dance to Journey's "When You Love a Woman," the cutting of the
              oversized wedding cake and the tossing of the bouquet.

           Public reception begins at 10 a.m.
           -- Just Married: An all-new 2009 Dodge Journey will be decked out
              in "Just Married" flair, with all the bells and whistles.

           -- Public Praise: A wedding reception, with live music by a
              Journey cover band and wedding cake for auto show attendees,
              will complete the dream day for these lucky lovebirds.

  Other:   Blake and Jackie will be the boldest, most adventurous couple to
           become man and wife at the 100th Chicago Auto Show. On
           Valentine's Day, Jackie will walk down the aisle -- toward both
           the man and the vehicle of her dreams -- to meet Blake and become
           his wife, and Blake will score a new bride and a new ride, all in
           the most memorable (and only!) wedding ceremony to grace the auto
           show floor.
