If there’s something that gels car enthusiasts better than anything else, it’s probably car gatherings that allow the adrenaline rushed excitement to increase tenfold. And that doesn’t need to be limited to the shores of Bahrain.
As the oil spilled all over the rubber, antique Jaguars, corvette, and mustangs were parked at the Kuwait Arjan Albida’s parking lot which was resonating with the bellow of engines. It was all part of an automobile gathering titled “Old is Gold”, which recently took place at Kuwait organized by the Q8 classic car club. Classic car club, ‘Gulf Muscle Car Group’(GMG) from Bahrain marked their presence in Kuwait for the first time along with many others from the GCC members. The parking lot was occupied with retro auto extravaganza granting a treat for the public and the auto-fanciers. The dominant sounds were the burp and the growls of decades old classic cars from different makers.
This is the first time a team from Bahrain is participating in a gathering organized by the Q8 team. “We would like to thank the Gulf Car Group for their active participation. Indeed, it was our pleasure to invite them. Their cooperation was a treat, and we could share the knowledge and know-how we had. We would also like to thank our sponsors and well-wishers for their generosity, without which the event wouldn’t have been possible. This year we managed to bring a great collection of cars from around, and we consider this year as one of our best. One of the best things about our gathering here is the demo of wide range of classic cars that joined us. There were classic cars ranging from Corvette to alpha Romeo, performances, history of cars, and their pride”, said an organizer of Q8 car club, Kuwait.
The gulf muscle car group is a vibrant car club in Bahrain, organized and operated by like-minded classic car lovers. GMG is the first organized group that gathers American cars under one roof. They are active in auto-gatherings, charity works and workshops. The members have shown their respect and honor to the country by organizing a car gathering at Bahrain during the national day celebrations.
Mohammed Hamza, the General Manager of the GMG said to Weekender that it was their pleasure to attend the gathering for the first time, and they look forward to the invitation for participation for next year. “This year, we are extremely glad we represented Bahrain, though, not the first time attending a motor event at Kuwait. We as a group have been actively participating in the celebrations of Kuwait National day but these kind of events will surely make a difference in the coming future, allowing us to broaden our horizon and reach out to like-minded groups when mutual love for automobiles is involved”, he said.
