John  Gulow
LaDawri  Coachcraft  Historian  Emeritus

From L to R, John Gulow, Geoff Hacker, Rick D’Louhy


From the late 1970s through the 1990s, John Gulow worked tirelessly in researching and sharing the history of LaDawri Coachcraft.  John tracked down his first LaDawri in 1978 and started compiling information in handwritten ledgers (remember kids….no personal computers in the late 1970s and 1980s….or very few).  John also traveled to car shows throughout the northeast seeking information by wearing a sign – a timeless tradition – also shown below.

We thank John Gulow for all his efforts, and know that his contributions continue to help all of us through the present day.  Click on the links below to explore in detail and check out some of this photos below.
