Anish, nice pix. But this is not a car museum. This was a show conducted sometime in January. The cars are part of a private collection, and were just displayed there for a few days.

I have some more pix. will post them soon.

If it was actually a museum it would come in at number 4 or 5 on the list as the first car museum would be the Bhogilal affair at Auto World. The second car museum would be the Titus "Pro Bono Publico " in Delhi followed by two or three royal garages in Rajasthan that have been opened up as car displays.

it is not a museum, so need to argue about its chronology.

My dear Sir.

I am not arguing about this just letting people who thought this was the fist car museum in India know that there are more.

How does replying to a post qualify as an argument ??

In the picture of the white Mini, there's a Citroen DYANE in the background. I didn't know any Dyanes existed in India. Someone please post more pics..
Also, the Chevrolet bus stole my heart !
