Olle Eriksson, Owner

      Growing up in central Sweden, Olle was a gearhead from day one. Surrounded by twisting forest roads and steeped in the thriving car culture born from booming Swedish industry, Olle was captivated by the automobile. At the age of 14, his passion for internal combustion and his mechanical acumen produced a custom-tuned two-stroke moped capable of blowing the doors off the school bus on his way to class. After excelling at his studies in automotive repair and restoration at university, Olle began his tenure as a high-level mechanic and fabricator for Saab, becoming a factory quality assurance inspector in Trollhättan by the age of 25. While working for Saab, he also participated in amateur rally and rally-cross racing, building and repairing top-level race cars and driving the wheels off of them. 


       In 1988, Olle decided to embark on a new life chapter and settled in Monterey, California. Beginning at Performance Automotive in Sand City, CA, Olle used his talents to create custom cars of the highest quality. He was a true pioneer of the resto-mod movement, landing on the cover of Car and Driver with an over-the-top conversion of a 1957 Chevrolet Corvette. His efforts were noticed by hot rod legend and aficionado Don Orosco, who brought him on as head fabricator at DBO Motor Racing and Monterey Speed and Sport. Working with Don, Olle led the creation of three Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance class-winning hot rods: the radical SoCal Speedster, the legendary Dick Flint Roadster, and the iconic Lloyd Bakan Coupe. 


After over twenty years working for private collections, Olle decided to take his knowledge and passion to the next level by opening Eriksson Enterprises in March of 2016.  Located in beautiful Del Rey Oaks and just a short drive from Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca, Pebble Beach, and the legendary Big Sur coastline, Eriksson Enterprises Eriksson Enterprises is perfectly located to serve the thriving classic car community in Central California.
