Cars gradually began to have a larger presence in Qatar in the mid-1950s. During this time, cars were mainly imported and acquired with the intent to facilitate everyday life activities. For some, this was a turning point in the country’s social history.
The excitement generated by the new experiences cars provided, was soon transformed into a passion for collecting cars.
Many collect cars to document and preserve pivotal moments in the nation’s history, evoke a sense of nostalgia and establish a collection of exclusive classic cars.
Mal Lawal 3 Cars showcases the private collections of two esteemed Qatari car collectors: Mr Salem Saeed Al Mohannadi and Mr Omar Hussain Alfardan.
