Having finished his studies at the Amsterdam School of Publishing Jeroen Booij (born 1975) published his first motoring article in 1998. Not much later he decided to become a freelance motoring journalist, soon specializing in classic, specialist or simply unusual cars. It lead to full features on vehicles that are hardly taken serious by the regular motoring press. With a passion for specialist sports cars the next step was writing a book about them. This was published after nearly five years of research. He is married and lives in the Netherlands with two daughters.
