There were a handful of cars which made an impression on me on during the recent 2013 MIAS. Since the rainy season has begun, it seems like the perfect time to put the spotlight on this particular lifted and tricked-out Nissan Navara.

Modified by Dr. G’s Car Clinic, who decked it out with a slew of IronMan 4×4 products, this is probably one of the best vehicles you would want to be in during those weekend offroad trips, and of course, the occassional… or rather, usual… rain and flooded streets of Metro Manila.

Two Generations of Epicness: RR Dagon’s AE86 Black Limited and Coy Enriquez’ Rocket Bunny 86

RR Dagon's AE86 Black Limited and Coy Enriquez' Rocket Bunny 86 Trans Sport Show Custom Pinoy Rides pic1
For spotlight features during events, we usually show one car at a time here at Custom Pinoy Rides. But since these two were paired together in the recent Trans Sport Show like father and son, we thought it looked awesome if we featured them together. Why? Because two generations of epicness is better than one. And besides, the Trans Sport Show’s theme for this year was “Driving Generations”.

Pictured left is Coy Enriquez’ Rocket Bunny Toyota 86, and right is RR Dagon’s Toyota AE86 Black Limited version. And I’m sure you’ll agree that both of them are epic in their own special ways. Agree?

If you’re a hardcore Porsche fan and enthusiast, then I hope you didn’t miss the recently-concluded 2013 Trans Sport Show. Why? Because that show was truly a Porsche mecca during the entire 4 days of the event. Just look at that – Porsche 911’s as far as the eye can see!

It was the Porsche 911’s 50th Anniversary; so the Porsche Club of the Philippines put together their prized collections of 911’s, circa 1965 to 1973. Moreover, on display were some of the most significant 911’s in history, including the Turbo, RS, RSR, GT2, GT3, a special 930 RUF BTR, alongside a select group of racing 911’s.

Read on as we showcase some of the amazing Porsche 911’s that we feasted our eyes (and lenses) upon. Enjoy!

Touchdown: Rauh-Welt Begriff Manila has arrived!

Ian King's RWB
Several months back, there was talk of RWB or Rauh-Welt Begriff coming into the country. After digging around who would take on the challenge of bringing the sought after Porsche tuning brand from Japan, we discovered it was Ian King and the guys at Car Porn Racing who would be playing host to the latest tuner brand to find its way to our shores.

Once word came that the build for the first RWB Porsche (plus two more) in the country was about to begin, we made sure that CPR would be there to witness and document the whole event for you. Stay tuned for our complete build feature which will be coming soon since the build is still in progress as of this writing.

As we all wait, allow us to tease you with the nearly finished RWB Manila Car#1. Anyboby who would care to guess what the name of the car will be?
