Rock & Roll Rides is classic car ride sharing
As an Auto enthusiast from Austin Tx, Brandon has had years of experience in collecting and restoring specialty vehicles, from European exotics to American classics. Brandon started buying and selling cars at a young age, working for his childhood friend’s family dealership where he learned many valuable lessons in the automotive industry. Having started with later model vehicles, his passion quickly led him to the classics and more specialty oriented vehicles. Brandon likes to spend his time outdoors, whether it’s riding motorcycles, cruising his rides, fishing, golfing, camping, or scuba, he likes to remain active. Founded in 2014, Rock and Roll Rides’ was created to get our favorite cars out of the garage and back on the road; so that both customers and owners can enjoy and share in the experience of specialty vehicles.
