Put two Emirati passions together—love of country and love of car—and you immediately multiply the enthusiasm.
This is most evident in these days leading up to the UAE National Day (2 December).
Cars are being dressed up with flags, stickers, ribbons and a host of automobile extras.
Car accessory dealers like those at Al Dablumaasi Auto Accessories Fittings & Sales in Al Gurfa Rd., Fujairah, report a rush on the National Day accessories.
Recently, according to shop assistant Mohammed from Bangladesh, they have been dressing up cars in the national colours to the tune of 30-40 a day. “But,” he said, “After National Day the sale of all this memorabilia goes quiet!”
If it is a big trend to dress up your car for the 39th National Day, what’s it going to be like next year on the 40th anniversary?
