Motoring through life in his Hupmobiles
Bill Van Dierendonck loves bringing these classic cars back to life
PRINCETON — Bill Van Dierendonck's love of Hupmobiles started early while growing up in Kewanee.
Van Dierendonck worked at a garage in Kewanee cleaning and fixing cars. One day, he was able to drive a Hupmobile and fell in love with the car. He told himself he would like to own one of these cars some day.
That day came many years later when he was living in Princeton and found a 1923 Hupmobile in Lacon that was restored in 1972. He also has spent almost 26 years to restore a 1940 Hupmobile, since he follows strict restoration standards.
