Welcome to 53Classics
We are a team passionate about our aircooled Volkswagens!
In 2015, Pim started photographing air-cooled Volkswagens during Vintage at Zandvoort in the Netherlands. The first photos appeared on Facebook and there were nice responses. Not much later a 1972 Beetle was bought and Pim and his wife tried to visit as many events in the Netherlands and abroad as possible.
In 2018, Pim decided to start a website and Facebook page to share photos and videos. This became 53Classics, of course with the famous Herbie movies in mind.
In 2019, Pim met Charis Amourgis in Greece and that friendship grew stronger and stronger. Charis, as president of the VW Fan Club Kefalonia, organizes various events on the island. In 2022, Charis joined the 53Classics crew as photographer.
53Classics has now been around for 5 years and has almost 100,000 followers. We hope to show you beautiful photos and videos for years to come!
