Default Pics: Sharjah Classic Car Museum

Sharjah is a place where they take their Cars very seriously. The Sharjah Car Club and Muesum is testament for the same. It First opened for public viewing in 2008, and the museum was renovated in January 2013.

The Displays are organized into different galleries that display the development of cars according to different time periods, Ranging from the early period to the 60's

Im sharing pics which my friend and I had taken on our visit there.

You are greeted by A Fintail and Friends sadly sitting out there in the sun.

As you go inside, you will notice a few cars parked on the side of the main building

On Closer inspection, these turned out to be cars which have been acquired, but not yet restored. I couldn't help but notice, how amazingy original even the so called 'junk' was there, compared to the botched up cars we get to work on here!

A Solitary 'Caddypop' Looks on in a corner. I was having mixed feelings about the whole place now.

Default Early Years of Motoring

As you step inside, there is a counter where a nominal entry fee is charged, and then the diplay starts.

As mentioned earlier, the entire collection is categorized into different Era's.

The Next Section was from 1940 to 1959. This section had a lot more cars than the earlier one, and the cars were laid out on various levels. This was the last year wise categorization, with the rest being specialized displays, which I will be posting in detail in the next section.

American cars from 59 onwards were kept in several areas, and not as a closed category.

Community Favorites- The description says it all. This display keeps on changing from Time to time.

The Mercedes 600, well nothing needs to be said, the Licence plate says it all.
There were a couple of other mercs, mainly a 116 and a couple of fintails.

The last post from my visit.

The red corvair convertible is the only car which visitors have permission to open, sit inside and take pics.

There was also a cafe in the adjacent building, which served some fast food.

The last pic is yet another Corvair, which is positioned on your way out.

Phew! What a beautiful place and well kept display. Wish you could add the name to each photos so that people can easily understand the model names.

Will rate this a well deserved 5 stars - not able to rate now due to some error.

Thank you JayD for this lovely thread. I have lived in the Middle East for the past 23 years and have visited Sharjah and Dubai many times on business but did not know that this place existed. I will definitely make it a point to vist it on my next trip to Sharjah. Rated 5 Stars. Oops! Unable to rate it now. Will do so later.
Regards,
Ashok
