Gerhard is our man on the ground in South Africa. He has literally spent his entire life driving and working on overland vehicles. His father took him into the bush when he was six years old to learn to drive before he ever started school. He also pulled duty in the Angolan war in the 61st mechanized battalion, where he was a platoon sergeant. He’s about as well schooled in the art of Land Rover Defenders as you can get. Nothing gets past him. He leads a team of mechanics and body men that make sure the vehicles that get to the United States are in good working order.
Gerhard has also been a life long explorer, heading out into the bush every chance he can get. His expertise and know how, allows Classic Overland to provide a quality product.
