Donald Martin Carrico was an avid fan of Cadillacs and would eventually become the national President of the Cadillac & LaSalle Club, Inc. from 1990 to 1993.
He had received a degree in business from Indiana University, and served as a radar technician in the U.S. Air Force from 1963 to 1965 in Vermont and Paris, France. Carrico worked for NCR Corp. in Florida and Ohio, later for AT&T in Chicago and eventually Pamco Label.
He died of cancer at the age of 65 at Kindred Hospital-Sycamore in Illinois.
"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
