Daytona Migi in Dubai

Set Fire to the Rain by Adele is the song I am listening to when I started writing this blog. You might then ask, so what is the relation to Daytona Migi?

Daytona Migi is popular in the United States especially for those who are avid collectors of vintage cars. Daytona Migi is patterned or replicated from the cars made by the British sports car manufacturing MG Car Company between 1920 to 1950s. The former MG Car Company popularized so many versions of sports car models, most of them are midget or migi as adopted in the US.

While staring at this picture that I took one Thursday, January 1, 2012 at 2nd of December Street in Al Satwa Dubai, UAE, it brings myself to imagining driving this car with Adele's song blasting the speakers while roaming around the city. Adele's singing style especially in that song really fits this blog. I'm talking and writing here about vintage car and also listening to this classy or should I say modern classic great song. How awesome you think that is. Lol!

I was really knocked dead upon seeing this car. Although I noticed that some of the original features are not in place. Like the wheels which are supposed to be spokes, but that's just a minor minus of how good looking this vintage car is.

Here in Dubai, UAE, seldom you can see vintage cars like this one. Locals and affluent expats usually own the latest expensive super cars. Probably the owner of this one is truly an avid fan of vintage midget sports car.

Since MG Car Company operation has long been stopped, cars like this that you will see, are probably replicas which are made to order on the internet.



Did you know: that a vintage car is commonly defined as a car built between the start of 1919 and the end of 1930 known as the "Vintage era"? Source: wikipedia.org
