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.

From an era of white supremacy and evil male patriarchy, scrap it.

Now if only those violent refugees got their act together and moved back to the country to rebuild it, maybe these middle Eastern countries wouldn't become failed States.

Rent-a-sister: Coaxing Japan’s hikikomori The 1950s car turning heads in Syria 1 day ago   12:56

At least half a million young men in Japan are thought to have withdrawn from society, and refuse to leave their bedrooms. They’re known as hikikomori.

Their families often don’t know what to do, but one organisation is offering ‘sisters for hire’ to help coax these young men out of their isolation.
