Default PV Vintage & Classics Museum - Hosabettu, Mangalore

First off, this is not a Vintage car/bike "Museum" in real sense, but private collection displayed in a largish garage. I heard about this place from my cousin (who happens to be a friend of the collector).

Name: PV Vintage & Classics Museum
Location: 15 kms from Mangalore (near Suratkal)
Type: Lots of classic bikes, scooters and a couple of cars.
Timings: 5 PM to 7 PM
How to get there: Do a Google Maps search for "PV Vintage and Classics"

Apologies for the low quality photographs - there is simply no room in the garage to take photos from all angles.

First off, the car collection:

1933 AUSTIN 10

Nice collection Girish! Next time, will try to drop in when you are in town.

I also noticed this particular bike but it did not have the information sheet on it. Funky speedometer!

I'm a student at NITK Surathkal and I'm surprised I haven't come across this till now. This is definitely on top of my list of places to visit once I'm back after summer.

Many congratulations Girish for crystallising your dream. I had been to your place many moons back and it is nice to know that the the mini museum is up and running.

What has been the reaction of the children, who visit your place ?

Congrats once again and well done.

Cheers

I had to threaten my hyperactive 6 year old son a couple of times - asking him to behave. He went crazy looking at all those bikes and cars

Hats off Girish! Excellent collection, I cannot imagine the efforts taken to source all these beauties and restoring them to the near original condition. Will keep it in my mind and visit your place whenever I am nearby Mangalore next time. Congrats and wishing you All the Best for the future.

P.S. I wish the Kartnataka Govt. gives some space to permanently display all these in Bangalore, so that more people can have access and visit your collection and make it into a must see tourist destination.

Sir,

Yes I do remember your visit. The kids go crazy more for the scale models that is in the showcase more than the real ones.... Have seen crying kids walking away
