In 1953 on January 17, the design for Corvette was unveiled.

There’s something about American muscle cars that is, oh, so appealing. I wouldn’t call myself a car fanatic but I do love cars! I know which car it is, most of the time as soon as I see it and I can usually tell what sort of engine it contains. However, I have to admit I still have much to learn, since my knowledge is very basic.

Living in a place like Dubai, I have the luxury of seeing spectacular cars zoom by me everyday and as you may have gathered by now, when I see something I like, I look it up to satisfy my curiosity. It is the reason why I can usually tell what car it is. Though I love corvettes, I cannot call it my favourite, in fact having said that I don’t think I have a favourite. These are the top 5 cars that I want: 1. Porsche Macan; 2. Ford Mustang 1970s model; 3. a black Ferrari (its just so much more fierce than a red one); 4. Mercedes G Class, I love how square it is and if anyone accuses it of being too square, I can always say :”well hey, it’s my way of being around” :D. I realise that it’s a cheesy joke, but I do love a pun. Finally 5 is a corvette stingray, the one in my featured photo.

Aside from cars, I also have a dream motorbike, which is a Triumph Bobble and Thunderbird storm.

I stumbled across this car, as shown as the featured image of this blog post I was walking around in Abu Dhabi, since the weather was good and I was going to a cafe near my house just to chill with some friends. I saw the car and I could not contain my excitement, I had never seen a car like this, unfortunately it was parked between two cars and I tried to take as many pictures as possible. I’m glad I did, however my friend was getting slightly annoyed. When I am happy about something, my voice suddenly gets louder and I can’t control it. I guess it is just one of my quirks and she constantly reminds me to use my inside voice. I turned to her at the moment and said “Luckily for you, we’re outside”. 😀

I saw this car a few years ago, it was when my curiosity for cars actually developed properly and motivated me to start learning about cars.
