Smile Vintage & Classic Car Museums & Collectors in Tamil Nadu

Hello,
With a collector friend, we will visit KERALA and TAMIL NADU from 10/10/2009 to 30/10/2009.

(BANGALURU, MYSORE, COONOOR, KOCHI, KOVALAM, MADURAI, TANJAVUR, PONDICHERRY, MAHABALIPURAM, CHENNAI)
What are the museums of old cars in this region?
Where can we see a rally or a gathering of old cars?
Where can we meet collectors?

Thank you very much.

I could show you my old cars, but I don't know how. Could you explane me.

Hello! There are no real car Museums in South India except perhaps the Hegde collection in Dharmastal near Mangalore. It may be better to send a PM to some of the guys on this forum who are located in south India and they may show you around. There are some private collections in Chennai and Bangalore. Maybe other places too I do not know about. But to see these places you have to do networking. But there is lots to see if you network!
All the best and have a good trip/

Cheers harit

haritji,
but the problem is many of the enthusiasts in small towns nowdays are wary of taking these foreign guys to these collection owners,because many of them then start to think they are having something not available anywhere else!!!

Jaja, I am in Chennai and have a small collection, including a French Traction avant.. You can see pictures of some of them in 'my Garage' in the Team BHP forum.
You can PM me and I will give you my mobile number, so that you can contact me when you are in Chennai.

Hey Jean, thanks for the PM. There are 6 cars lined up here in Annur, this is near Coimbatore. Supposedly up for sale. I spoke to the RTO a while ago and he confirmed the same. You can also have a look at the RTO's collection here.
Cheers

When you are at Madurai try to get an appointment with TVS group.
They have a Cadillac displayed in their place opposite to Railway Station.

Shyam,
I didn't investigate into the history of the car, but it seem to be in very decent condition! However, I did not see any other pics of the car, could you send me a link?
