This is such a wonderful collection!

You sure are a man with real good taste and eye for fine cars - brilliant work there Sir!

It must be a delight going thru' your garage - if you'd allow, I'd love to drop by when I'm in town.

On a side note, how often do you drive all of them around?

You are always welcome. Its always nice to interact with a fellow enthusiast.
You can see a collection of my cars/Jeep, two wheelers & over 380 scale models of classic & vintage cars and bikes, as also neon signs, period posters
and tin signs.

What a wonderfully done garage. You have excellent taste. The cars/bikes are looking very good too. Guess the garage must be your pride and joy.

Though I'm not a vintage enthusiast, I couldn't help myself drool over the arrangement of the items in the garage. Special kudos to the light effects, low ceiling, wooden panels, metal panels for the display of posters, random arrangement of the posters on the panel, the neon hangers, tight parking space, the scale model arrangement, bamboo curtains, the utilization of the pillars, white walls and what not.

Perfect settings for a garage museum.

Beautiful. Admire your passion and enthusiasm to not just collect cars but ALSO showcase them in the manner you have with scale models and period memorabilia such as posters, neon signs, etc. Truly wonderful and a delight. Would like to see a few more photos.

Srivardhan, this is an absolute delight to the eyes ! What a collection man, and so wonderfully displayed. Your scale models are to die for !!

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

FANTABULOUS, Awesome, Dream, Enviable are just few words that can describe your collection. Rudra has already echoed my real thoughts. Of luck I'm suppose to come to Chennai for a ship survey soon.
Now I have much more a reason to come to Chennai.
I'm inviting myself to your place even without asking you.

Raab Rakha.
