The 1950s car turning heads in Syria

Neither war nor the Islamic State group has stopped Abu Malek driving his 1952 classic car across Syria.

The 67-year-old DeSoto Powermaster is a bit worse for wear, but still works.

Fifty years ago, the petrol engine was switched for a British tractor engine.

Before the most recent war, when fuel was better quality, Abu Malwk says it could reach 140km per hour.
