A vast row of factory halls in the rolling hills of Belgian Hainaut. Nothing is made here anymore, except history. The smell of rust and engine oil hangs here.
Hundreds of cars stand in the dust, bumper to bumper. Some perky on struts, most slumped on empty rubber. Legendary cars, everyday family cars, graceful sleighs and forgotten four-wheelers, each with its own story. This is the raison d’être of the Mahy family from Ghent, three generations of stubborn collectors who brought together one of the largest collections of old-timers in the world.
This book highlights this silent procession of unique old and young timers. In backlight and in the spotlight. Along with the stories written in their rearview mirrors. Stories of glory and loss, of perilous journeys over bleak roads and a never-ending quest for beauty on four wheels. Stories as they have been told for generations at Mahy, a family of cars. IN DUTCH!
