If you’ve been amazed at what A-Toy Customs has done in converting an R33 Skyline into an R35 GT-R, then all the more if you found out that the were able to convert an A31 Cefiro into an R35 GT-R, as you can see in our featured car today.

We’re naming this Big-Body Toyota Corolla “Boso-Sogo” just because we want to. No offense to the owner, as we don’t know if that’s what he calls it, but that’s just what we thought of calling it, mainly because of the bosozoku-inspired theme, combined with the Sogo logo where, correct me if I’m wrong, has a Geisha peeping from behind a fan.

The recently concluded Wheels & Machines 2 Car Show was a surefire winner. The variety of cars in the show was absolutely astounding, we really enjoyed going. We took so many shots that sifting through the photos made it hard to pick our favorites. We’ll post the photos soon. For now, enjoy our video coverage.

Due to insistent popular demand, we’ll be having more “Pinoys Abroad” features here at Custom Pinoy Rides. Just proves that no matter where Pinoys relocate to, the spirit of modifying and customizing cars will always be there. It’s embedded in our blod. It’s part of our passion. Filipino ingenuity in action.
Check out Pepe Smith’s 1989 E30 BMW 325is, representing Los Angeles, California, USA. I love the fact that the mods done to it looks period-correct. And that it has just the right amount of drop where form meets function.
Looks like the E30 BMW is here to stay. Why do you think it’s so popular around the world? Share your thoughts in the comments!
Yes, that’s right. This car was originally a Civic EG Hatchback. Having undergone an extreme makeover, it has just about lost it’s Honda exterior physique, and reshaped into something that looks to have been Lamborghini Gallaro-ish inspired. It’s now called the “King Spyder.”

The New Lexus IS is THE BOMB! It’s just oozing with so much XXX appeal – with emphasis on the spindle grille and everything that flows from there to the rest of the body lines.
We always love hearing from our readers, not just in the Philippines, but also abroad. And what’s even more awesome is seeing their beloved project cars come to fruition.
Today, we’re featuring 2 super cool storm trooper-themed JDM rides owned by Davey Bartolome and his cousin Daimler, both Filipinos from Sydney, Australia. Here’s what they had to say:
Good day sirs. My cousin and I are frequent readers of your page, and just wanted to share our rides with you. Filipinos from Sydney going strong! My EVO 6 and cousin Daimler’s Silvia. – Davey Bartolome
Well Davey, we’re always proud to showcase awesome rides like yours. Thanks for sending your photo. Cheers and more hp mate!
It’s amazing, the things you can do to a Suzuki Samurai. With the proper modifications, you can turn a simple boxy little off-roader that barely anyone in the local urban society wants, into a mountain conquering monster, feared road-raged drivers. It’s like night and day, like turning a Kia Pride into a Ford Mustang! I know it’s not of the same gravity, but you get what I’m trying to say right? Which is one of the things that make the nifty little Suzuki Samurai so great, and why this deserves to be featured here at Custom Pinoy Rides.
Check out the rest of the gallery below of this Neon Ninja – Monster Samurai. Enjoy! Continue reading

The all-new 3rd Generation Mazda 3 (BM) is looking really nice, I should say. Do you remember when the 1st Generation (BK) was released? I thought it was a game changer in terms of design, looking futuristic compared to the rest of the market in its class, that is until its platform sibling – the Ford Focus, came out, and then followed by the Honda Civic FD, which then became the new game changer.
But now, with the launch of the 3rd Generation Mazda 3, I think it’s a new game changer for its class. The design details that look as if you’d only find them on premium mid-size and up sedans are found here, and it pretty much seems that you’ll be getting more than what you bargained for. Let’s just see how engine power compares to others in its class. What do you think?
