GeDee car museum Coimbatore-hidden treasure

Coimbatore has a car museum accessible to public. It was opened in 2013, so into its 4th year now. 70+ vintage models are on display here, spread over 1 floor (basement), complemented with related videos/information display for each model. The GeDee car museum is a great place to visit if you have couple of hours to spare.

Let me show you some of my favorite pics:
The first generation of cars- includes the legendary Model T and Benz cars which were the earliest versions of motorized transportation.

 Benz Logo

 First gen Nano CX cut into half!
 Ford Cortina
 Morris 8
 Toyota Sera


It was totally a treat to the eye. The museum takes you through the birth and growth of automobiles, beginning with earliest models which had a top speed of 3 kmph to current generation Porsche and mercs. When in Coimbatore, try to visit this museum.

There is also a science museum in adjacent building, which has separate ticket. This museum houses dozens of old typewriters radios, cameras and such stuff and some equipment to explain science phenomenons.
