The Multicab, as Pinoys would call it, is a small light truck, or as the Japanese creators would have it – Kei truck. Originally made to be the workhorse of the smallest of vehicle classes in Japan, it has evolved to many different versions with various purposes.
Some people have affectionately called the 4×4 Kei Truck versions as “MiniMogs,” as they are somewhat miniature versions of the Mercedes Unimog Truck. So if there are those who modify the Unimog to further improve its off road go-anywhere prowess, then why not do the same to the “MiniMog?”
Well, as you can see, that’s exactly what the guys at 199 Off Road House have done. Read on to find out more…
How do you set yourself apart from the many Mitsubishi Mirages that you see rolling around the streets? This is definitely one way. Would you agree?
Yes, you’re not hallucinating. This Mirage looks good. It’s really not how much customizations and aftermarket goodies you put; it’s how you make everything work together harmoniously. Sometimes, simple mods make a big difference.

Video clips from the recently concluded Car Mavens 3. Enjoy!
In the sea of Monteros and Fortuners that you see left and right nowadays, the Isuzu Alterra, and even the newer MU-X, is almost as if it’s a left-field choice. But after seeing this Alterra right here, that looks to be capable of tackling all types of terrain (hence me calling it an All-Terrain Alterra, despite it being fitted with Mud Terrain Tires), then it makes owning this a pleasure, because you have something that not everyone has.
Not only does it look like an absolute stunner with it’s murdered-out all black looks, but it’s also modified with all the absolute essentials needed to enhance it’s off-road prowes, like a snorkel, proper suspension lift to fit those Cooper Discoverer Mud Terrain Tires, 199 Off-Road House Armor all around, IPF driving lights, and of course, a Winch to get you out of the toughest situations.

Before the Rocket Bunny Toyota 86 / Subaru BRZ / Scion FRS became cool, there was the Rocket Bunny S13. I should say, even in though this kit is several years old, it definitely makes this RPS13 stand out in a sea of more modern customized and modified cars. All of a sudden, the RPS13 looks timeless and awesome at the same time. Combine that with super-wide wheels with aggressive offset and tire stretch and you have yourself a winner. Would you agree?

Ken Block takes a different spin on gymkana this time around, as instead of driving in his usual office – a rally car, he takes on the new gymkhana course in a custom-built AWD Ford Mustang.
Needless to say, this video is pure awesomeness, and has taken the meaning of gymkhana once again to an all-new level.
Check out the video below now. Enjoy! Continue reading

Though HSV or even Holden cars aren’t available in the Philippines, that doesn’t mean that Pinoys can’t get to own one. Christopher Agam, who is based in Perth, Australia, is one of the lucky Pinoy car guys who rolls in one – specifically this murdered-out wonder you see here. Who wouldn’t want to own something that’s powered by a 6.2L LS3 V8? And isn’t it awesome having the convenience of four doors, a back seat, and a trunk (or “boot,” as the Aussies call it)? Imagine driving an Evo or Impreza STi that’s Rear-Wheel-drive, and without the turbo lag. How much fun would that be?
