SHARJAH CAR MUSEUM

August 6, 2008

I always thought that we would see either Dubai or Abu Dhabi complete this feat first, but Sharjah has beaten them to the punch.

While many car collections remain in the private residences of owners across the UAE, Sharjah has decided to take one step in the right direction in this rapidly developing market.

If you want to know more about the new RTA law on cars older than 20 years and what you can do to protect your classic car please seach the Latest News Section on a dedicated piece to guide you along your way.

While the Sharjah Car Museum isnt exactly littered with Duesenbergs, Lincon Zyphers or Auburn Boattail Speedsters, it certainly does have its fair share of very nice Rolls Royce’s and other marques you would certainly expect to see out here in the Middle East.

The majority of cars need work, as does the clubs ethos in reaching the correct base it wants to attract to its Membership rota.

With a dedicated clubhouse, pool table, books, magazines and a soon to operate coffee house – it has all the humble beginnings of an organisation that can sprout to much larger proportions in the very near future. Winter occasions will be supported by the large outdoor space with manicured lawns that adorn the entire purpose built facility just next to the Sharjah Airport.

Mohammed Ben Sulayem is a member of the Federally recognized club that aims to protect owners and put them on an equal footing with one another during Member gatherings with specially made historic plates and an individual registration process.

A trip to the Museum is well worth it and I do believe that it will be a template for Dubai and Abu Dhabi to celebrate the mass hoard of trophies and true spectacles of Rolling Art littered throughout the UAE.
