Pim Hesse

Owner & photographer

Born in 1984 in Maassluis, the Netherlands, Pim has always been interested in older Volkswagens. In 2015, he went to a Volkswagen event in Zandvoort for the first time to photograph and thus was able to combine both interests.

That same year, his wife and he bought a 1972 Beetle. Since then, they have been traveling around Europe to visit as many beautiful locations and, of course, Volkswagen events as possible.

Pim started the 53Classics website and Facebook page in 2018 to share the photos and videos he takes during events.
