Idea & Philosophy

AutoNet carbooks was founded in 1996 by Ellen and Gijs Beusekom in the Netherlands. After selling carbooks for almost 25 years they decided to retire and handed over their business. Since September 2020 autonetcarbooks is powered by the specialist bookshop DISCH Fachbuchhandlung in Hamburg, Germany.

DISCH Fachbuchhandlung was founded in 2002 by Matthias Disch. His own enthusiasm and passion for classic cars, aviation and books were the main focus from the beginning.

Thus, a space was created for like-minded enthusiasts who appreciate a good printed book and would like to experience and purchase this in a pleasant ambience.

The assortment now includes around 2.500 titles, a large proportion of which are in English. Antiquarian books are also on offer. Books not in stock can usually be procured at short notice.

"all about classic cars and aeroplanes" has always been the profession.
