Meet Iggy and Seb
Iggy and Seb were born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Collecting and restoring classic cars and everything vintage was a family tradition. They grew up surrounded by their grandfathers passion for classic cars who used to own an old junkyard, full of cars, land machines and appliances among others. As children they used to play in their grandfather’s junkyard and collect vintage items which they used to restore.
At a very early age, Iggy and Seb also started building all kind of scale models. Seb also started painting and sculpting. Iggy studied engineering and Seb studied architecture, both in Germany. Their passion for classic cars, scale models and vintage items remained over the years as a hobby.
