Saudi citizen spends 40 years collecting classic cars

A Saudi has strengthened his love for old cars and his love for the hobby of owning them, by establishing a private museum consisting of two floors on an area of 2,000 square meters in his home, in which he collected more than 36 classic cars, which he brought from around the world, and also worked on adding a private workshop.

Dr. Nasser Al-Masari, a specialist in curricula and teaching methods, and after retiring from King Saud University, was keen to develop his passion and love for classic cars, despite the difference in his field of work far from the world of cars, but he stuck to his old love for rare samples of cars more than 40 years ago And the first car that was acquired was in 1948, during his scholarship in the United States of America, and it was a 1946 Cadillac.

Dr. Nasser, who attended a car race in Lawrence, Italy, when he was a trainee to study, kept in his memory those enthusiastic moments he lived, while watching the car race, and admired the aesthetics of old cars compared to modern ones, and he was 19 years old, so he loved the artistic and aesthetic values in them.

In an interview with Al-Arabiya.net, Al-Masari stated that the total number of cars he has is 36, in addition to 5 cars coming in shipment, and most of the cars are old from 1929 to 1979 from American cars, and 3 European samples such as Buick, Cadillac, and Chrysler.

Al-Masari looks forward to collecting more than 50 old cars to be able to open an entire car museum, after all, procedures are completed, indicating that the prices of these cars vary, and some of the range in price from 100,000 to millions of riyals, as these cars are sold in private auctions.
