Car enthusiast Mohammed Mohiedin Anis gazes sadly at a 1955 Buick Super, one of his collection of vintage cars "wounded" in battles that ravaged the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.On his return to Aleppo, the pre-war economic capital of Syria, he went into business, opening a cosmetics factory called "Mila Robinson".But his passion has always been the cars inherited from his father, a wealthy textile dye entrepreneur who drove the 1950 Pontiac that has pride of place in Anis's collection today.Since AFP's correspondent in Aleppo first interviewed Anis in February 2016, much has changed for the car enthusiast.His 30-car collection has now been reduced to 20 through vehicles destroyed or stolen during the fighting.Anis has two wives, one in Aleppo and another in Syria's central Hama, and eight children.His taste is somewhat eclectic, with a strong preference for 1950s American cars: Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Hudson and Mercury, although he also owns a German Volkswagen and a French Citroen 2CV van.
