This has led to both gentlemen as mechanical junkies looking for cars from a bygone era at home and abroad. They now enjoy working on these cars. And that was turned into the Alroy Classics company. It is fair to say that people are increasingly prioritizing their own projects. Expansion with more staff is not an option.
There is now an NSU Sportprinz among all the beautiful classics. Older readers know the sports car for its sportiness and elegance. When he discovered this classic, Albert felt the flame he had felt in his boy's heart again. After all, true love is always the childhood love that you can only feel in your heart. You already understand. Despite the state, Albert felt that this NSU Sportprinz deserved a second life. A purchase based on feeling and not for commercial reasons. But more of a rescue of this special luxury and exclusive car. Albert: “Everything that disappears can probably no longer be made original. This NSU Sportprinz, which was found in Norway, has now been saved before it would disappear into the recycling machine. ” Not an everyday car, but a valuable sporty asset for those who appreciate it.
Nice that the company name is composed of father Albert and son Roy (Alroy). Every day they can sniff nostalgia, and that has already been amply proven. That is refreshing. The heart beats faster with the automotive past. The garage also contains a large number of finds that get a new future, such as an Opel Kadett A. Citroën 2 CV, many VW Beetles, an Opel Olympia from the 50s. (They call themselves a specialist in Volkswagen and Citroën but all brands receive the same professional treatment.) The future of these models is usually not in the Netherlands. The interest in the beautiful classics comes mainly from abroad. The internet has made the world bigger and the passion is still very much alive everywhere.
According to Albert, driving a classic is so different. So much more fun than a modern car. “Every visitor to our company in Wolvega has a smile. Impulse buying is also an icon of its time (The sixties). They remind us of a time that has passed. But we can still evoke and experience the feeling by driving these special cars again. ”
