Jacco's automotive hobby life can be summarized in a very well-known text by Chuck Berry. Riding along in my car. My baby beside me at the wheel. I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile. My curiosity running wild. Crusin' and playin' the radio. With no particular place to go.

Jacco wants to cruise with his friends with no particular place to go, he can speak passionately about his American asset to anyone who will listen to him. It is clear that only American cars have his preference. This Chevrolet Monte Carlo Coupe is for him what makes the American so enchanting, not to mention the wonderful raw sound of the Corvette engine.
Jacco: “You can view the Chevrolet Monte Carlo Coupe from every angle, the pleasant lines of the youngtimer are optimally worth seeing. It was not a time-consuming job of repair or restoration for me, because the car was bought in this condition and complete with the powerful Corvette engine. The data with the car is from 2005 and 2006, what can be learned is that the car was serviced in Brooklyn (New York). I am a proud rider – despite the criticism I get – when I want to put my enthusiasm into words. It is fair to say that reactions are very different. One greets you enthusiastically and the other ignores you completely. My friends all think it's a 'great laid-back cool car' and I feel rich with every kilometer driven.”
Jacco: “What is special is that there was a note from the first owner with the text: This car was my baby, I hope you enjoy it, this american muscle runs like a bear. The Corvette C4 engine runs really beautifully, giving you goosebumps. I know that the petrol is now almost as expensive as perfume, but it is definitely worth it to me to give the youngtimer the tracks.”
Adoration for the car
Jacco goes very far in his adoration of his Chevrolet Monte Carlo Coupe. He shows a tattoo that reads: “En mi coche me siento libre, esta mi vida”. That means: “In my car I feel free, THIS IS MY LIFE.”
