Gilles Gaudissart exhibits at the Musée Automobile de l’Aunis his collection of old cars gathered since the early 90s. Opened in 2018 under the name of Automobile Museum of Ciré d’Aunis, the museum moved a few kilometers into a new building offering 3000m² of exhibition (hence the name change) and reopened its doors in early July 2022.
The cars of the Aunis Automobile Museum
The collection of the Musée Automobile de l’Aunis now presents more than 90 cars. Often recovered “in their juice”, the cars have been restored by their new owner-collector. Some cars and motorcycles from other collectors complete the exhibition.
Gilles Gaudissart is mainly interested in vintage cars (1910-1930), although the collection also includes some more recent cars (such as a 1965 Mustang). He also has a predilection for rare cars of French brands that have now disappeared.
In this new building, the cars are more spaced, in order to better highlight the other objects and make the visit more pleasant.
A few motorcycles, many original enamelled plates and some old gas pumps complete the presentation and decoration. The new building also incorporates a restoration workshop visible to the public, which makes it possible to follow the ongoing restoration work. It will also allow collectors to come and maintain their cars. The personal experience of the restoration allows Gilles Gaudissart to play an advisory role to collectors. A shop and conviviality area, with coffee and cold drinks, allows a break. Free parking.
