an automotive journey

our story

where it all started


The origin of our company dates back to 1957, when we started as a local garage in Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands. When Hans Bezemer took over the family business in 1976, he started collecting classic cars. When he passed away in 2007, we started with our “Real Art on Wheels” philosophy. Bodie Hage grew up in the collection and started with washing cars. In 2013 Bodie took over the shares in the company from the Bezemer family.

In 2021 Gaby retired, however she’s still assisting while we are attending classic car events.
