    I don't know all the details and history, but here is what I know. Marr was a engineer or designer at the beginning with Buick. They split up, failed separately, made up, and the rest is history. Out town has a rich history of GM executives buying summer homes. We're coming up on our centennial, and guess who is in charge of planning the parade and shows? We have the privilege of having a 1919 Marr in town, as well as the great great grandson of the guy on the Buick picture... And he has a few buicks along with the Marr. So, April 13 2019. Here is what I posted. Signal Mountain, TN

    Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye! It's time to start planning the centennial celebration parade of the Town of Signal Mountain. It's a birthday party and everyone is invited! We need cars from the 20s, 30s, 40s and WWII/ replica, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and today. Convertibles, horses, horse drawn carriages/wagons, organizations, churches, school clubs, scouts, musicians, businesses, antique motorcycles, reenactors, tractors, antique police cars, antique fire trucks, volunteers, coordinators, kids, grandparents, and most important...YOU!

    If you or anyone you know would like to participate, contact myself or Steve Yokam. Here is the sign up link.

    We hope to plan decade themed car shows throughout the year following the parade. Roaring 20s, depression 30s, 40s and WWII, Happy days 50s, flower power 60s, muscle car 70s, back to the Future 80s, k car 90s, and today with an invite for electric cars.

    Edit: The theme of the parade and our hope for floats made from chicken wire and paper machete is ......A town through time.

    Your input is greatly appreciated!

    Don't know Tanner. The Marr is red I think. Owned by one Barton Close.
