I noticed a very nice Toyota Chaser Tourer passing me by a few days back, Since he had a "Classic" license plate, i suspect it was a X90 5th generation model. The car pulled like a rocket on Al Qudra and i was amazed to see in which condition it was.

Anyone has seen these before here in UAE ?  Before that day i've never seen one here. I am not sure if it was a LHD or RHD (even allowed as Classic car here ?)

Dunno about now but earlier if you went to the RHD used car market you could see a lot of such JDM rarities over there

I’ve seen a couple of RHD AE86 here on classic plates. The full on Euro version, not the Levin with the pop up headlights. That’s one thing I love about UAE, you never know what crazy stuff you will see on the roads.

Heres a R5 Gordini Turbo I spotted randomly cruising round Al Quoz

Lately they are allowing rhd cars with classic plates but so far I have only seen Dubai classic rhd's...

Shj does it do. Have a buddy who has his RHD 1940's Land Rover registered in Shj with Classic plates. 

In fact Shj has been doing Classics for a while now and surprisingly it's much better than Dubai which has very strict criteria and rules for Classic like you can only drive a certain number of kms a year. It doesn't care how old the car is it has to be made before a certain date. Your car could be X many years old but if it was made after that date it will never be considered a classic
