Crusing Qatar…in a 1959 Buick Electra!

Qatar, officially the State of Qatar, is a sovereign Arab state, located in Western Asia, occupying the small Qatar Peninsula on the northeasterly coast of the Arabian Peninsula.

We don’t hear much about this state in western news and you may be surprised that there is a strong interest in drag racing in Qatar. Also, they will host the 2022 World Cup in soccer and I am sure it will be a first class event. Maybe it was the drag racing part or something similar that attracted Mr. Khalifa Alhussaini to an American car. We do know he picked a good looking car.

Mr. Alhussaini from Qatar checked in with ClassicRoad.com and he is showing off his super nice 1959 Buick Electra cruiser.

Mr. Alhussaini tells us that he imported the car from New Your in 1988.

Probably the best angle of the majestic 1959 Buicks. The Delta Wings.

The car is all original except a repaint in the Silver Birch Metallic color. It is a striking car.

In the word of Mr. Alhussaini: “There is no car like it here.. Catching the eye and twisting the necks”

Well, I bet! Thanks so much for sharing your Delta Winger Flyer with us.
