An appreciation of classic cars is a lifestyle but more important is the stories behind these vintage beauties.

Visit the Motoring Nostalgia pop up museum (located in Zabeel Hall 1) and see the rarest classic cars at the Dubai International Motor Show.  Only for 5 days!
The museum experience will fuse live talent showcasing their skills and passion for what they do, great music and supporting acts roaming the space.
