Viktor Klemencic

My name is Viktor Klemencic, I am an all-round mechanic at E&R Classics. I was born in Slovenia and that is also the place where my love for vintage cars started. I worked here with my father on classic cars for 19 years. I have learned a lot in these 19 years. Since my mother is Dutch, I moved to the Netherlands a long time ago and started working at ERclassics. Here I could continue my passion and tinker with vintage cars.

My very first car was a white 1977 Chevrolet Caprice. I have used this car as a daily driver for about 6 years.

My dream classic car is a 1950 Cadillac Le Mans
My dream car is a 1950 Cadillac Le Mans. I think this is a beautiful classic that also really drives like a classic car. There's nothing like the pure feeling you get when you drive a classic car from the 50s. These kinds of cars need your attention while driving and that is something that makes my heart beat faster.

Suppose you had to give someone a lift. Who would that be and why?
If I could give anyone a lift it would be Salvador Dali. I like his art very much and he is also a bit crazy just like me… I used to go to his Dante's Inferno exhibition in a beautiful castle in Slovenia. That is a moment I will never forget. His art therefore remains extra special to me.

What is your best car related memory?
I once worked on a 1960s Cadillac from the Graceland collection. The customer wasn't sure if Elvis Presley had driven the car (he had quite a few Cadillacs), but the thought that he had made working on the American classic very special.

What makes a working day at E&R Classics so much fun for you?
What makes a working day the best for me is the mutual atmosphere in the team. All colleagues get along well and everyone enjoys their work. The coffee in the canteen is also very tasty!

I also really enjoy working for customers who love vintage cars. These car enthusiasts understand better than anyone how classic cars work. Sometimes a part is difficult to obtain, but a real classic car enthusiast will always handle this with understanding. The reaction of a satisfied customer when he receives his beautiful classic in top condition is priceless to me!
