The National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) has unveiled 'American Muscle Cars in Qatar', an exhibition charting the increase in the supply of American automobiles to Qatar during the 1960s and 1970s.
American Muscle Cars in Qatar, sponsored by Mawater, is on view at the NMoQ’s Mawater Gallery until 15 February 2022, as part of the Qatar-USA 2021 Year of Culture.
The gallery, previously called the Vintage Car Gallery, was renamed following Mawater’s sponsorship.
American muscle cars are taking the centre stage at the National Museum of Qatar this month with the opening of a new exhibition.
Ahmad Musa Al-Namla, CEO of Qatar Museums, said, “The exhibition provides a nostalgic showcase of Qatar’s fascination with American muscle cars, in the 1960s and 1970s, which was, at the time, a reflection of changing cultural needs and aspirations of the country and its people.
“We are honoured to be able to host this exhibition as part of the Qatar-United States 2021 – an initiative promoting cross-cultural collaboration and celebrating the longstanding ties between both nations.”
