Philippines - Traveling up north always gives me this unexplainable excitement, maybe because of the smooth traffic and scenic stretches passing through mountainous regions via Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx). Most of drivers from Region III will probably agree with me on this as compared to the chaotic EDSA.
This time we head to Subic Bay Freeport Zone (SBFZ), for the annual Subic Bay Auto Show now into their ninth edition. Held at the Harbour Point Ayala Mall, the same venue last year’s event, the only difference now is that parking has been moved to the front of the mall, alongside Rizal Highway.
Visitors to the show will not only get to check out crazy motorbikes, loud audio cars, track monsters, off-roader trucks and a lot more, but also spend some quality time with their friends and family inside the shopping mall as Harbour Point is celebrating it's sixth year anniversary with a bunch of offers and promotions at various stores within.
Let’s jump straight into the show! There were a variety of old-school Volkswagen Kombi Vans displayed right at the entrance featuring several themes from being stanced to a purpose built caravan for the great outdoors - a true feast for the senses considering the amount of work put into each vehicle.
Mitsubishi Olongapo displayed their latest SUV available on the market - the Montero Sport, together with the all-new Xpander. While Ford Olongapo showcased their heavy-duty Ranger, and their all rounder the EcoSport.
Cars and Coffee showed support with their American muscle cars featuring a black Ford Mustang, a yellow Chevrolet Camaro and a slammed Porsche Boxster. Nobody should miss the opportunity to take a selfie with this huge rig claimed to be the biggest in Asia.
This was the Nissan GT-S we featured a few weeks ago, it definitely stood out thanks to its wet looking shiny red paint, the plastic covers in the interior made it look even more attractive.
