Don Rose joined RM Auctions in 2006, after many years of professionally trading sports and classic cars, and after earning a reputation as a noted importer of European classics while living in London, England. Now residing in the Boston area, Don serves as the vice-chairman of the Aston Martin Owners Club North America and the editor emeritus of its magazine, The Vantage Point.
Most knowledgeable about cars produced between 1945 and 1985, Don specializes in Aston Martin and sports and GT cars. He is also interested in European marques and the relatively new area of Japanese collector cars. A life-long automotive enthusiast, Don has a personal collection of historic race cars and has participated in a variety of road rally events, such as the Carrera Panamericana and the Mille Miglia of Argentina (Mil Millas).
The culmination of his life-long interest in both cars and James Bond was realized when Don consigned the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 James Bond film car to RM’s 2010 London sale, and subsequently went on a world tour promoting the car.
In Don’s own words, “It turned my hair grey and added five pounds; I didn’t sleep for months, and I loved every minute of it!”
