The concept of bringing the “Pride of the Emirates” to reality, is more than 20 years old. I am very thankful to God that with the help of a few friends, my dream has come true. The idea behind this concept was to decorate a car in a unique way, which no one has attempted before. It was my extreme desire, dedication and ambition to do all by myself. The completion of this project was a great challenge. The project started in October 2010; I decided to decorate my son’s 1998 model Chevrolet Camaro. It was the most suitable car for my unique project.

My grandfather's extreme love with automobiles which I inherited during my education period. thefirst automobile which i designed and assembled when i was about to finish my graduation, i managed to drive a four wheel motor car, chain driven with a BSA motorcycle engine and got special awards in a science fair.

I started my career with banking profession butthe crazy interest with four wheel drive vehicleslike American jeeps, modification of vehicles and used car business did not allow me to continue.

It's one of the only American sport coupes that's stayed true to its lineage for more than 30 years. While others have come and gone, Chevy Camaro has always stood for style, agility and performance. For 1998, that performance bloodline continues, as Camaro arrives wîth a number of dramatic changes, including a new exterior appearance, a modified Corvette LS1 5.7 Liter V8 engine in Z28 models, as well as chassis and braking improvements, an available Sport Appearance Package (formerly the RS) on all models.

In 1973, coins were introduced in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 fils, and 1 dirham. The 1, 5 and 10 fils are struck in bronze, with the higher denominations in cupro-nickel. The fils coins were same size and composition as the corresponding Qatar and Dubai dirham coins. In1995, the 50 fils and 1 dirham coins were reduced in size, with the new 50 fils being curve-equilateral-heptagonal shaped.
The value and numbers on the coins are written in Eastern Arabic numerals and the text is in Arabic. The 1, 5 and 10 fils coins are rarely used in everyday life.
