Last year I came across a special calendar exclusively for muscle cars of Kuwait, it was designed and photographed professionally but I didn’t know who is the guy behind this wonderful idea so I searched this calendar again this year and got it from Historical Vintage and Classic cars museum.

My first impression, amazing calendar and very well photographed including some of very clean and unique cars when it comes to classic and muscle cars.




Emad Al Ali is the man behind this idea with the support of Hamed Abu Eidan. Hats-off to Emad Al Ali, a true muscle car enthusiast and specialized in oldsmobile 442. Not forgetting the important role of the muscle car owners who have shown their support toward this great calendar by providing their cars for photography. Last but not the least our very own Ibrahim Al Awadi with his magical shots, great composition and true dedication, I must say an important part of the crew of Muscle Car Calendar 2013.


Keep it up guys and all the best for 2014.

RateMyQ80Ride is all about car gatherings and meets for car enthusiasts, back in 2010 we decided to publish a calendar for year 2011 by gathering all car groups and publish them on one page each of the Calendar 2011, 70x50 cm Calendar faced lots of challenges to gather car groups as this never happened in any of ratemyq80ride’s gathering before.

Calendar 2011 was released on the last week of Jan 2011 due to some sponsor issues as only few agreed to sponsor the Calendar.


After having a general idea and experience of past gatherings we conducted gathering in September, 2011 for Calendar 2012 to cover the maximum groups keeping in mind the time span as we had some new groups to be published, sponsors this time were a bit more confident as they saw Calendar 2011 a big hit,  couple of new sponsors approached to be part of our Calendar 2012 which was released in the last week of December 2011.


Calendar 2013, expected lots from it but most of our gatherings got clashed with some major car events like Gulf Run Karting, muscle car show and some due to bad weather. The biggest failure was our super car gathering as only 3 cars showed up, it was funny and embarrassing at the same time as it was the most awaited & anticipated gathering of all times.


Release date of Calendar 2013 was first week of Jan 2013.

Special Thanks to Kuwait Performance Garage, Boosted Spirits, PWP performance, Apr Kuwait and Kuwait Choppers for participating every year as a sponsor.

Need your suggestion for Calendar 2014 as we are thinking to reduce the size to half and publish 2 Calendars instead.
