Yesterday evening, my husband and I visited the 'Classic Cars Photography Competition'  held at the Historical, Vintage & Classic Car Museum in Shuwaikh. The competition photos were displayed for public viewing from 15th May to  28th of May, 2011. The Museum houses a wonderful collection of historical, vintage and classic cars and one can experience the rich  automotive history of the past. It's a must visit museum where you can can revive your knowledge of automotive culture of a bygone era and learn about current automotive information as well. I will write another blog separately on the Museum in few days.
