Mike Carpino
Dealer Principal
(620) 429-2200

My name is Mike Carpino and I am very proud to be the Dealer Principal of Mike Carpino Family of Ford Lincoln Dealerships. I have lived in the Columbus area my entire life and graduated from Columbus Unified High School. 

I started my automotive career in 1981 in auto mechanics at Southeast Kansas Area Vo-Tech School & continued my education at Pittsburg State University to complete my AutoBody Program degree in 1986. I began my retail sales career in 1987 in Columbus and had the opportunity to purchase the dealership in 2005. In 2019, we purchased the Ford Lincoln stores in Parsons and Pittsburg, KS.

I enjoy spending time with my family, which includes my wife, Lynn, and daughters, Haley & Hannah. We enjoy watching the Kansas City Chiefs, golf, traveling (especially Florida), and spending time at Grand Lake, Oklahoma. 

Thank you for being a part of the Mike Carpino Family of Ford Lincoln. If you have any suggestions on how we can be a better place to do business, please feel free to call me anytime.
