OK, OK, i understand what you mean, but I am part of a group of 6-10 of us, and someone has to pay.

Those minxs, they're better at spying than Meerkats!

So do you have the porsche parked up at the bar next to you??? Just wondering how they know you drive one.

I drive my DH's Mustang sometimes and it is so funny looking at women the way they check it out and stand around posing. You should see their faces when they see a woman get out of it or realise it is a woman driving it!!!!

I love the Dubai automotive demographic.

Take one car (take your pick from the retro muscle car generation), which costs USD20,000 in the states

Ensure car is cheaply made, utilises prehistoric suspension and shoehorn enormous engine into it.

Import it to Dubai, convince public it is prestige, charge USD35,000 plus and
sell thousands.
