Quotes

  • "He restored his first car when he was 15 - it was a Chevrolet.  Then he went on to restore old Cadillacs.  It was a passion for him."  Virginia Davis, Donald Carrico's fiancee
  • "He would restore cars and then he would keep them for a time and then sell them and get more cars to restore.  It wasn't a commerical business.  It was a lifelong love for Cadillacs.  He had been working on a 1941 Cadillac and a 1952 Cadillac.  He also had a 1963 that is ready to drive."  Virginia Davis, Donald Carrico's fiancee
