Looking Back: The Best of 2011 Custom Pinoy Rides Photos

They say that everything that happens in the past makes you who you are today…

Looking back, 2011 had been a SMASHING year for us! We’ve gained 5,000 Likes on our Facebook Page, more than doubled our readership from 2010, and have grown a lot in terms of bringing you some badass cars and taking some of the sickest photos of them.

I’m very grateful to have met a lot of awesome new friends, groups, and companies in 2011, and am very grateful that a lot of them have chosen to work with us on a professional level (that officially makes us professional photographers) through car photography services as well as website sponsorship.

Of course, Custom Pinoy Rides would not be what it is today if not for you, yes you, dear readers and loyal followers. And I promise to give you more awesome cars and photos in 2012. Oh, and how would you like a “Reader’s Rides” series we can show off your very own Custom Pinoy Rides? Would you like that? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Meanwhile, here’s a round-up of the Best of Custom Pinoy Rides Photos that we’ve personally captured in 2011 using our continuously improving photographic talents. Pilipinas Got Talent yo! Check these out…
