“Colonial mentality is the thinking that foreign talents and products are always the good, the better, and the best, and that the local ones are of poor or no quality at all.” – emanila.com
When it comes to the Philippine Aftermarket Industry, people tend to buy USDM or JDM “branded” products, and even proudly display the sticker decals on their precious cars. Why? Well, one of the reasons can be because of Colonial Mentality.
Here at Custom Pinoy Rides, we do what we can to battle Colonial Mentality, and instead, promote the local aftermarket industry. That’s why we have “Proud to be Pinoy” sponsors and partners such as Atoy Customs – arguably the best custom car maker on this side of the world; Rota Wheels – World renown wheel manufacturer; and our most recent addition to the family, High Society – who not only carries the Filipino Flag by promoting local products here, but also abroad!
One of High Society’s brands is none other than Stivo Racing. You’ve all heard about Stivo Racing products here at Custom Pinoy Rides when we showed you their awe-inspiring Toyota 86. Well, ladies and gentlemen, it is our pleasure to announce to the world that Stivo Racing Exhausts have made its way into the USA!
As you can see in the above photo, the Stivo Axleback Exahust for the Toyota 86 / Scion FRS / Subaru BRZ is fitted onto this stunning ride. The California plate being evidence of it being on US soil. And in case you hadn’t noticed, it’s sporting a Stivo Trunk Spoiler too!
