Jeroen Rood

My name is Jeroen Rood, international seller and buyer at E&R Classics. I studied Automotive & Nautical Business Management at the IVA in Driebergen. During my studies I did an internship at ERclassics, which I liked so much that I eventually continued to work there. I have enjoyed working here for many years now.

I bought my very first car at ERclassics when I was 16 years old. It is a white Volvo P1800 that I bought as a project car and refurbished with my father. It took us 3 years to restore the classic car and I was very proud when the restoration was completed and I could finally drive the classic Volvo. In the meantime I have made quite a few kilometers with the Volvo P1800 and I still regularly go on holiday with it.

My favorite classic car is a Maserati 3500 GT
My absolute dream car is a Maserati 3500 GT. I prefer to see this Italian classic in the colour dark blue with a red leather interior.

Suppose you had to give someone a lift. Who would that be and why?
If I could give anyone a lift, it would be the Stig from the Top Gear auto show. Maybe he can give me some tips along the way…

What is your best car related memory?
My best car-related memory is a skid course with classic Porsches. This day we made a beautiful ride with all kinds of Porsche classics and concluded the day with a skid course. This is a memory I will never forget!

What makes a working day at E&R Classics so much fun for you?
No day is the same at ERclassics, which makes it so much fun and varied for me. When I am on the road to buy classic cars, I meet all kinds of car enthusiasts and I see the most beautiful (classic) cars. From English classics to German sports cars, I am amazed every time what beautiful classics I come across.
