The Mahy collection: 'The Reserve'
A vast row of factory buildings among the rolling hills of Hainaut. Nothing is made here now, apart from history.
An acrid smell of rust and engine oil hangs in the air and the only sound here is a pigeon flying through the broken windows. A thousand cars stand in the swirling dust, bumper to bumper, mudguard to mudguard. Slowly dwindling away into their own oil. Legendary racing cars, elegant limousines and obscure fourwheelers, each with a story of their own.
What if we were to shine the spotlight on a selection of these vintage cars and their histories? An exposition, beautiful photos and a luxury book does just that. Naked and with backlighting.
