A Holden lover from way back

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS - Hank Kreemers (with Neil Beer Sey­mour’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Greg Beer) has just pur­chased an­other Holden. Hank Kreemers tak­ing delivery of a new HQ Holden when he was the as­sis­tant man­ager of Sey­mour Taxi Ser­vice.

They don’t come much more com­mit­ted than Hank Kreemers.

The well-known Sey­mour iden­tity has just pur­chased Holden number ‘‘30-some­thing’’ from Sey­mour’s Neil Beer deal­er­ship.

From his first ve­hi­cle — an FJ Holden ute — to this lat­est of­fer­ing, a SSV Red­line wagon Mr Kreemers said he has never owned any­thing but a Holden, and he never in­tends to. And the rea­son is ob­vi­ous. ‘‘They’re Aus­tralian made, and they’re the best car that was ever made for Aus­tralian con­di­tions,’’ he said.

‘‘They’re the best car on the road, it’s that sim­ple. If you can name a car on our roads at that price range that’s bet­ter, I’ll lis­ten to you.’’

In fact, Mr Kreemers is so im­pressed with Holden, he can’t just stop at one.

He has had two cars on the go at any one time since 1979, and has a lim­ited edi­tion Di­rec­tor — there is only 310 in Aus­tralia, and just an­other 50 in New Zealand — locked away at home which he takes out on week­ends, or for spe­cial oc­ca­sions.

Mr Kreemers said it was im­por­tant to sup­port lo­cal busi­ness, and the ser­vice he re­ceives from Neil Beer Sey­mour has been noth­ing short of out­stand­ing.

‘‘Neil has al­ways been friendly and good to me, and now his son (Greg Beer) is do­ing the same,’’ he said.

‘‘Why would I go any­where else. Peo­ple say to me ‘you can prob­a­bly get it cheaper in Mel­bourne’, but you can’t. You just can’t beat their ser­vice and their value.’’

And the feel­ing’s mu­tual for Neil Beer Sey­mour’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Greg Beer, who said Mr Kreemers’ ded­i­ca­tion to the brand was sec­ond to none.

‘‘Hank’s our best cus­tomer by far, and he’s a great bloke to deal with as well,’’ he said.

‘‘Hank keeps com­ing back to us, and he sends a lot of peo­ple here too with his high­est rec­om­men­da­tions, so he’s cer­tainly a highly valu­able cus­tomer and friend to us.’’

Mr Kreemers said he takes own­er­ship of a new ve­hi­cle every 18 months to two years, but he’s been so im­pressed with his lat­est pur­chase that he ‘‘might just hang on to this one for a while’’.

‘‘I’m not fa­nat­i­cal about cars, but I just love driv­ing. Trucks, tow trucks, cars — you name it, I’ve driven it,’’ he said.

‘‘To sit in one of th­ese, you en­joy driv­ing even more, it’s a driver’s car and an in­cred­i­ble one at that.’’
