Old is Old


Old is Old.

Ever heard that before? No?

You must be kidding!

Look back at your old television set, languishing in an ever growing storage room, then turn your sights towards you spanking new 55” LED screen. Would nostalgia prevail over comfort?

Sure, in hand to hand combat, your old idiot box will massacre your thin new LED, but you didn’t buy the LED to fight, did you? On the brighter side, your old TV set can make some really good scrap. Good use for something that wouldn’t make a $1 sale at the cheapest of yard sales.

Coming over to old cars, “Old is Old” doesn’t hold true here, and only here. One could kill to get his hands onto a vintage ’69 Corvette Sting Ray. The joy of driving a ’67 ‘Stang is truly unparalleled. Although being just 15, I haven’t had that pleasure yet.

Leaving you for now with the old, I’ll be back with more soon! Until then, its classic muscle all the way!

A Few Classics In Dubai

Old Not So Gold?


I recently visited an informal car meet in Dubai and looked on in awe at the assembly of cars there. However, there were two in particular that stood out. One was a 1924 Ford and the other was a hot rod with an exposed engine.

Now, one may spend hours just admiring these two classic works of automotive excellence, but does that guarantee these cars legality on the roads? Just imagine the state of either of these cars should they have the misfortune of being part of an accident. Moreover, the Ford ran on wooden wheels! In the event of a crash, imagine splinters of wood flying around in the air or the engine of the hot rod flying out of its frugal chassis and landing on someone’s head! These things must be seriously considered by the authorities before granting them road-legal status, albeit with a classic registration plate.

Beauty is good but safety must be our foremost priority.
