Syrian War Decimates Man's Vintage Car Collection

As the saying goes – in war everyone loses, but undeniably, the Syrian Civil War has cost Mohammad Mohiedine Anis far more than his freedom and civil rights, it has lost him one-third of his priceless 30-strong classic and car collection.

Previously, Anis’ collection boasted some 30 beautiful classic and vintage cars from the 40s and 50s, now depleted to just 20, over six long years of fighting between anti-government rebels and Syrian forces, that have ravaged the city of Aleppo.

Due to the pristine condition of his vehicles, many of his cars were also used in local film productions.

Anis’ dream was to open a vintage car museum but hope of that is all but lost for now. Unperturbed, Anis plans to repair and restore what he can of the cars that were damaged. From one petrolhead to another, we hope he keeps the fight.
