I'll make sure I barge in when I'm visiting Chennai. Better still, I'll make a visit only for this.

Perfect settings for a garage museum.

Fantastic Srivardhan, long time coming. Not just the vintage cars but the way you have showcased them with scale models, neon signs, posters. This is one place any auto enthusiast would love to visit. Maybe a ticket counter ?

Dussey, this is a labour of love and dedication, you have set up a lovely compact display, very very much a reason to visit Chennai soon.
To create such a garage you have to first aquire the stuff, then restore it, then make a layout and build the interiors. No wonder you don't have much time to post. Keep it up, and make your expansions plan well ahead of requirement. Stuff is getting more and more difficult to find.

Cheers harit

P.S. I doubt that is a Pocher model, they were larger, scale 1:8. I doubt the company still exists which is a pity.

Congratz Dussey!

This is truly a Collectors dream come true. Your Passion and enthusiasm is apparent.
As Ravi (Super Select) has mentioned, we will have to exclusively make a trip to Chennai to meet up with you and get a chance to feel special viewing your collection.

It's hard to believe a private car display in a person's home this beautiful anywhere in the world, leave alone in India! I think I could comfortably make the place my bedroom; after all, what better way to go to sleep at night and wake up in the morning than in motoring paradise

seen this beautiful and fantastic effort of Srivardhan in Person. The sheer collection of miniature models pristinely kept and organized make us all feel humble. The cars on the whole are superbly restored.

Superb and worth a visit for everyone who resides in Chennai and transiting thru and for anyone who loves cars and bikes and memorabilia that has been so nicely placed with period.

His 4 x 4 Jeep wall is a big WOW even though I am not a 4 x 4 Jeep fan.

Cheers

Flight to Chennai : 4500 rupees
Restaurant bills : 1000 rupees
Travelling to Dussey's place : 50 rupees
Watching these beauties : PRICELESS.

Your collection is really amazing.
The pictures speak of your love for cars.

Amazing is the word...Congrats Dussey ji. I guess most of the Scale models are sourced from abroad, including the RC Merc 500K.

Honestly, when I saw the title of this thread, I imagined the cars to be parked in a nice garage. Some of them dusty. Some not. And I got the shock of my life when I saw the photographs. This isn't a garage mate. This is your living-room!

Absolutely fantastic! Everything is so shiny and delicious to look at! Lip-smacking chrome, right there! And the scale-models and period sign-boards and neon-lights give it a very museum-feel! And to own your own private museum is something else! You've got a stunning collection, mate!

A few questions. Are you still collecting vintage and classic cars? Do you have any interest for classic sports-cars? There are plenty out there that require YOUR attention.
