Bob DeKorne has been involved in marketing classic car insurance since 1998. He has been fortunate to attend nearly every major concours event in the country, as well as every major classic car auction for the past 17 years. His career brings him into some of the finest private collections in the world, as well as many of the major automotive museums we all love to visit. He’s part of the Heacock Classis Insurance team and has been an automotive enthusiast since he was about three years old. His earliest childhood memory was sitting on dad’s Zundapp 150 motorcycle every time he got his hair cut.
