Aptly located in the midst of art galleries and installations, Nostalgia Classic Cars is the new one stop destination for classic cars in Dubai.

A place where you could simply lounge out and read up on your favourite classic cars; or better still, buy your dream classic. If that weren’t enough, a place that allows you to service, repair and even restore your classic car. Seriously, it doesn’t get any better than Nostalgia Classic Cars for those passionate about those iconic wheels from the past.

Classic cars

Located at the Alserkal Avenue in Al Quoz, Dubai, the 1000 sq m. facility has a classic car library and lounge, a display area that can be converted as a fresh concept in event venues. Nostalgia Classic Cars has a complete restoration department under Ibrahim who has 25 years of experience working with elite classic car restoration teams. The dedicated approach has even assigned a team member only to source authentic parts for these classic cars – which is often the greatest challenge in service and restoration.

What I liked most about Nostalgia Classic Cars was that the 100+ collection had timeless classics for the most discerning collector, and selections for an entry-level hobbyist, priced between 50 and 100 thousand US dollars (185,000 to 370,000 dirhams.) This verily justifies the vision of the founder Mazin Al Khatib to initiate a classic car culture amongst a larger audience of enthusiasts.

These cars are brought in from around the world – Japan, India, Europe and the Middle East. 85% of the collection is sourced from previous owners rather than auction houses or dealers, helping the price to stay reasonable. Nostalgia also offers sourcing service for specific cars on a commission basis. Mazin speaks of the motivation behind this beautiful idea, “As a classic car enthusiast, I always felt the need for a showroom in this region that provided a turn-key proposition for other enthusiasts who may have struggled to find or maintain classic cars in manner fitting their age and value.
