Dick Parker made his way to the Crystal Coast from Mount Olive selling candy and watermelons out of the back of a pickup truck when the depression years sent him out looking for work. In 1947, he opened up his first car dealership in downtown Morehead City near the present day yacht basin. Embracing his new hometown and its passion for fishing, Dick and four other local businessmen, which would soon be known as the Fabulous Fisherman's Club, started the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, which at that time lasted the entire summer. The Parker Automotive group is proud to continue his legacy and tradition of supporting the charitable efforts of the tournament and the excitement surrounding reeling in the big one!
