Mega-collector NBC’s Don Ricardo set the stage for Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld

Big Band Director and the original NBC Orchestra founder, Don Ricardo was an avid car collector that leveraged his fame and fortune into what was notably the premier Daimler, Mercedes Benz, Gullwing collection of last century. Don was fascinated with the Gullwing design and held a Delorean or two under cover. His passion was the automobile, and music provided the revenue to support his passion.
