In cooperation with Sharjah museum authorities, hundreds gather to view timeless models from the 20’s and 30’s including Ford and Buick models
Visitors can take a step back in time this week as Al Qasba—the premiere tourist, cultural and entertainment destination in the emirate of Sharjah—enters the final days of its Classic Car Show exhibition featuring rare automobiles from around the world. The event—which is being held at the complex’s Block A walkways—is free to public audiences of all ages.
Held in coordination with the Classic Cars Museum in Sharjah, the exhibit features cars from a variety of international companies, specifically models from the 1920’s and 1930’s era. This was the first period in history with a real boom in commercial car sales and rapid advancements of the industrial mechanics. The historic automobiles featured this week include 1928 Buicks, Ford 1928 and 1930 Model A cars, 1928 Chryslers and 1930 Plymouths.
Chatting with car enthusiasts at the exhibition, the Chairman of Sharjah’s Classic Cars Museum Mr. Ahmed Al Jarwan has expressed his own enthusiasm for hosting the public event at Al Qasba. “Displaying the museum’s priceless treasures is always a very rewarding experience, and by taking the show to new public audiences, we hope to inspire the modern generation of car enthusiasts to learn about the historical impact that this industry has played in global society,” comments Al Jarwan.
Dina Al Nakhi, Events Manager at Al Qasba, also believes that automobiles are a great way to connect people of all ages through a passion for innovation and design. “The exhibition is one of many important cultural events that we aim to introduce in 2010, offering a unique value to audiences with a particular interest or hobby,” says Al Nakhi. Huge audiences have already attended the two-week event, which this year was held from January 28th – February 11th.
Other upcoming events at Al Qasba include special activities surrounding Earth Hour Day, the “Share the Light” walkathon for Palestine, and a huge sporting exhibition to be held during the FIFA World Cup this summer.
