Dr. Antoine Farrah
Pediatrician
2nd of June 2009

 Few Weeks ago, while surfing the Net, an original, simple and attractive website got our attention, http://jaguarcollectionlebanon.com  A Lebanese Pediatrician, Dr. Antoine E. Farah, Jaguar Car Collector.

Dr. Antoine Farah is born on the 20th of June 1967, graduated from the USJ Faculty of Medicine and then joined the American University of Beirut for his Specialization in Pediatrics.

What are your hobbies?
A: Classical Cars collection

When did this passion start?
Since my childhood I started collecting matchbox cars. 15 years ago, at the young age of 27, I bought my first Jaguar E Type 1968 model.

How did this passion start?
I have always been impressed by old cars and I enjoyed driving them. Being curious about car mechanics, I started renovating old cars. It is motivating to watch old cars increase in value with time.

Have you turned your hobby into a professional occupation?
I thought about it but being a Pediatrician is keeping me very busy. However, the idea is still dormant, and my passion for cars is increasing. Maybe when I retire I will be fully devoted to my collection.

Jaguar Mark 2 1965 3.4L Brown

Is there a specific car would you like to add to your collection?
The Jaguar XK 150 Coupe

Would you be interested to trade cars with other collectors?
Yes of course.

If you have a very interesting offer to sell your car collection, would you do it?
No

What would be the value of the cars you own today?
At least US $ 350.000

Do you have any other hobbies?

I started his hobby since I was six years old collecting car toys.

How did this passion start? 
Upon graduation I received my first car from my father as a gift. I remember it was a 1962 white Ford Falcon. I always wanted a Porsche, my dream car, but my father was against this kind of car because of its high speed performance. While at university I bought a Volkswagen Beetle because it reminded me so much of the Porsche design. In 1990 while visiting the USA I bought my first Porsche a 356B-T6 Dark blue, it was the starting point of my collection.
