Along the Amstel River, in the shadow of Amsterdam with the Arena and Ziggo Dome almost in sight is where Ouderkerk aan de Amstel is situated. It is this rural area where the Houtkamp family has built a company of stature. Not only in terms of international fame but also because of the impressive sales collection where quality is obvious.
It was 1977 when John Houtkamp was able to make his work out of his passion for cars. In 2004 his son Rutger joined the company after his master graduation which wasn’t u huge surprise considering he grew up on the backseat of his parents car. Since he could walk he accompanied his parents to all sort of classic car meetings and events. He inherited the same passion for classic cars and as a young boy spend every available hour at the company.
Visiting the showroom of The Houtkamp Collection it is the beauty of the classic cars that amazes you, the dark colored showroom has been chosen with taste and makes the collection ultimately come into its own.
To be honest, we really wanted Houtkamp to join Capital Cars & Classics. Not only because it is almost a home game and for the family, but especially because it is a very nice addition to the already impressive range of exhibitors. The Houtkamp Collection, welcome to the second edition of Capital Cars & Classics at the 18th and 19th of March 2017!
