ZWAKMAN MOTORS
                 Historic Jaguar experts Holland.



Zwakman Motors is a independent dutch jaguar company founded by Tom Zwakman.
Tom grew up at the bmc / jaguar garage of his father with many fast cars around and learned the skills at early age.
Seeing old cars going to scrapyards and in particulair the jaguars he loved was painful so by mid seventies he started a classic jaguar garage to preserve the good examples and restore the pour ones.
He always wanted a perfect work standard but had to little hours in the day for that so he decided to focus and continue at only the mechanical technique side of the cars and use the service of the best available specialists for the body & interior work.
In 1984 he opened Zwakman Motors, a new company and set-up for only engine & mechanical overhaul of historic jaguars and became worlds first specialist in his field. 
In a few years time the leadership of the company will be succeeded by his good friend Edwin who is a lot younger as Tom and already over a decade trained for the job and nearly ready to take over, however this will not change the character of company as Tom will stay active at the workfloors and advising the company.
Zwakman Motors has invested more than anybody else to keep historic jaguars alive and will continue this way also in the future.

In addition Tom sells rare historic jaguars of exceptional quality and has always better cars available than anybody else at the open market can offer you because he bought many decades ago the very best available cars and sold these to his home customers who one day will sell again and always given him first choice, also there are often some unique one-off fabricated fast road cars available. 

A company born & built by real passion.
