Mal Lawal 3 Cars by NMOQ – Essence Of Qatar

Till Aug 1, 2021 @ 7:00 pm
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.
The exhibition is open to all!
