Secretary: Don Marpe
Don grew up in a small (350 population) town in Minnesota. His father owned a small (12 car sales a year was a good year) Ford car and farm implement business. Growing up at a Ford garage gave him a strong loyalty for those cars and almost any car except a Chevy. He has owned a variety of Ford Motor Company products including Mustangs, Merkurs, and his favorite – Jaguars. He has owned a XK8 and two XKs.
Don and Bonnie moved to Frisco Texas in 2016 and joined the JOANT shortly after arriving. Don helped Alan Barclay set up the 2017 Concours D’Elegance and took over as Concours Chairman for the 2018 to present events. Don is also the club Secretary.
