Default India's First Car Museum

I read that there is a car museum opened up in Mehrauli.Delhi
This one petrolhead turned his 6000sqft farm into a vintage car museum
Has anyone been there?

Yes! i was there on its innaugaration last year with my uncle's '54 Dodge. Its by the name of 'Pro Bono Publico' owned by one Mr.Diljeet Titus, an advocate by profession and a vintage/classic car restorer-collector. Hes got an amazing set of cars there including immaculate chevys and cadillacs from the yesteryears but the showstealer is the prized '36 Minerva of Belgium, i think it is one of the eight existing in the world or something. But anyhow im planning to make a trip there sometime soon again ill get you lotsa pics this time. Its open just one sunday a month, first or last i dont remember.
