6th Emirates Classic Car Festival
I hate being what is called being fashionably late. But in my defense, I must say not by choice, I just can’t help it. I am sure this reason would suffice. But personally, I hate being late…with last minute’s chores, the office time and the list goes on. Even though nice guy at Asda’a BM PR Agency did send me an all exclusive media invitation. Nonetheless, no reason to moan further I did ramble on the Emaar Pavilion, Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Downtown Dubai. Those who are unaware of this location, just bear in mind this is just down under the tallest building in the world, The Burj Khalifa. Dubai makes every effort to flaunt it, just like any hashtag or SEO would lead you directly here. I suspect that someone in near future would whisper in and then at the very next day, there will be Dubai’s version of Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance.
This time the event is quite a prestigious one. The 6th Emirates Classic Car Festival unveiled the largest line-up of over 225 classic cars and motorcycles on the glorious Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, the thoroughfare that encircles downtown Dubai. I guess to view each car you’ll have to walk 2 Km up and down as cars are positioned on the either side of the side walk. However, I do not like idea of car being camp’d (most probably due to the protection from dust. I unfortunately could only cover half of the area. Sadly enough, I am sure I missed out many a gems.
I took all the photos, however, I must admit that some of the photos are just terrible:
Because of the awkward settings or that ubiquitous pale white shiny tent covering that ruined the (could’ve been) animated background and the contrasts.
The placements of the cars are just not good. It seems like a trade event where some bought the tents and some aren’t bothered. Any ways, this is it.
