Where is Sheikh Fahad's Car?

Does anybody know where Sheikh Fahad's (Fahad Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah) car is now?  It used to be on the Gulf Road across from the aquarium (where Olympia buildings are now).

Sheikh Fahad was the founder of the Kuwait Olympic Committee.  He defended Dasman Palace during the seige by Iraqi forces on August 2nd and was martyred.  He was succeeded by 5 sons (including Sheikh Ahmed Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber) and a daughter.

The statue is his real vehicle. The fist depicts the sign that he used to make and symbolizes his defiance against the invading forces.
