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
About Us -
Due to the enormous volume of information available most of the lists on the site are works in progress. They are great for seeing what information or products are available or what events have happened but the absence of information or a line item on a list should not be interpreted that something did not exist or did not happen. It probably just means we haven't gotten around to adding it yet.
